Important information for NEW PiRA Autumn interactives users:
Based on feedback from schools and live data analysis from the New PiRA Autumn interactive tests last year (2020), we have made some updates to the way in which some of the open response questions work to ensure that the auto-marking rules are applied consistently. This means that updated versions of the New PiRA Autumn 1-6 interactives will be made available on MARK from 20th September 2021 and the Autumn 2020 versions will no longer be available for use.
All marksheets containing pupil data from the Autumn 2020 tests will continue to be available and scores from these versions will remain unchanged, however teachers will no longer be able to use the test review function to check how the pupil answered each interactive question.
We understand that open response questions are the most complicated questions to mark and we have worked very closely with the authors, a development editor, year-group specific teacher reviewers, live interactive test data and common answers gathered in trialling to create the range of specific answers for each open response question that are accepted, with common misspellings and punctuation variations added as appropriate. If you would like any further information about these changes please contact your local Assessment consultant.
