As of the next academic year (2018/19) online assessments will be phased in over a three-year period, starting with procedural numeracy in 2018/19. Over time the online assessments will replace the current paper-based national tests.
The new personalised assessments will adjust the difficulty level of the questions in order to provide appropriate challenge for each learner.
