Based On The SATs
The papers follow the format and conditions of the SATs papers so that they feel familiar and provide the same rigour as the national tests. To ensure that the tests are classroom-ready, the papers have been trialled in a wide variety of schools located across the country.
Assess Fluency And Intellectual Processes
The papers use the cognitive and content domains from the national curriculum tests allowing teachers to test pupils’ thinking skills and intellectual processes. And unlike some assessment schemes, which only test the curriculum from that year group, our papers provide content from earlier years, giving teachers a more complete assessment of pupils’ understanding and progress.
Easy To Administer
The class packs include a comprehensive guide on how the tests should be administered and marked so that the scores will be fair and consistent across the school. Furthermore, the marking scheme shows you how to credit pupils who have not provided the full answer but have demonstrated a level of conceptual understanding.
Support Following The Tests
All pupils are required to meet national expectations, which means that nobody can be left behind. Pupils highlighted by the test as not having sufficient depth of knowledge in a particular area will need help catching up before the class moves on. To assist pupils who haven’t mastered a concept, our marking scheme references which chapters of the Primary Maths Series need to be revised.
