Written in the style of the SATs papers, Optional Tests are proven to assess children's knowledge, understanding and application of the programmes of study for English and mathematics against national expectations.
An independent review found our Optional Tests to be reliable and effective, so you know that you can trust them for your summative primary assessment solution.
Performance Indicators are provided for each year in Set A to help teachers identify whether children are performing in line with national expectations. We also provide National Test Indicators for Set A Years 2 and 6 to help teachers understand how children may perform in the national tests.
We offer three comparable sets, so you can use the tests flexibly in line with your primary assessment policy. Optional Tests assess the entire year's worth of content and can be used as end-of-year assessments, mid-year diagnostic tests or for benchmarking at the start of the year.

Gain valuable insight into individual and group performance with free online analysis and reports.

We have confidence that the tests will cover the work taught and allow us to make good judgements on the progress children are making through the curriculum.
We can see how children are performing and what areas of the curriculum they’ve retained, plus we're able to make comparisons across classes.
We felt so relieved that we had prepared our children well for the new demanding tests and an important part of this was certainly the use of the Rising Stars Optional Tests.
