This test is one of a battery of tests aimed at diagnosing strengths and weaknesses for children studying topics within England’s National Curriculum. The test can be offered within Levels 1-5 - thus allowing parents and teachers to be able to look for areas where problems may lie, as well as topics for enrichment and extension.

The items in the test are drawn from an item bank. The test can only look at new and fresh skills – or it can go over some topics that have been tested previously.

The results can be compared to those found within schools covering National Curriculum levels. This comparison can be used for validation and reliability studies.
