Raising Standards Together

Personalised numeracy assessments – sign up for trials!

Welsh Government is developing new personalised assessments which will replace the paper National Reading and Numeracy Tests over time.

In September and October 2017, we are running the first trial for the new onscreen test questions for procedural numeracy. The purpose of this trial is to test the questions in the online environment and to establish question difficulties.

We are inviting schools to participate in the trial of the new assessments on a pre-arranged date between Monday 18 September and Friday 27 October.

We propose to select learners from at least two year groups from your school. The assessments will be automatically marked by computer and our contractor AlphaPlus will provide your school with feedback on your learners’ performance.

This is an excellent opportunity for your staff and learners to see question types and to play an important role in developing the new assessments.

Support will be provided throughout the process and all information relating to this project will be treated with the utmost confidentiality.

Please contact trials@nationaltests.cymru for further details of how to become involved.
