Once the last test for the testing cycle has been administered, the headteacher must sign and submit to the relevant local authority a declaration confirming that the test packs were received and stored securely, that the tests were administered correctly according to the requirements set out in the NT administration handbook and that the tests were marked in accordance with the markscheme.
This declaration is for the paper tests only. This year pupils will take an online personalised assessment for Numeracy (Procedural). The personalised assessments can be taken any time during the school year and do not need to be completed by the end of the test window. Headteachers agree to administer the personalised assessments in accordance with the administration handbook when they first sign in to the assessment website.
