The Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority has confirmed an option was available for jurisdictions to provide schools and students impacted by connectivity issues to re-sit NAPLAN later this month.
However, after consulting with stakeholders on Friday, Education Minister Jeremy Rockliff said he was of the view that the benefits of resitting the tests were outweighed by the "potentially negative impact" on the state's learners and teachers.
"As a result Tasmanian government school students will not be asked to re-sit NAPLAN," he said.
"This decision will allow Tasmanian government schools, students, teachers and parents to move past NAPLAN testing and to continue with the 2019 school year.

"NAPLAN is a snapshot in time of a student's learning and should not be treated as the only indicator of student progress."
Tasmanian students were among those who lost their work or were unable to complete NAPLAN assessments on the new online systems, however the number of those affected is unknown.
Mr Rockliff said he requested advice be prepared for the National Education Council to consider any impact to NAPLAN reporting for the disruptions, and to ensure any students whose tests were disrupted were not disadvantaged.
