Readability and layout

The readability and layout study investigated how students perceive and react to a range of different online item configurations and displays. The purpose of the study was to evaluate different item display and navigation options relative to onscreen layouts.

Findings from the readability and layout study have been incorporated in interface, design and layout options in order to provide optimal readability for NAPLAN online tests in 2017.

The literature review and findings from the field trial are now available in the research report (PDF icon 9.95 mb).
