Some of the timings for the NTS Assessments:English/Reading papers were adjusted after the first papers were printed. These have been amended on subsequent print runs and are correct in the Test Guidance manuals, but please check the below tables to ensure you administer the papers using the correct timings.
Key Stage 1:
Key Stage 2
Please note, Mathematics timings have not changed.
We issued the following updates in December 2019 and February 2020. We advise that you read these if your school took part in the Autumn 2019 and Spring 2020 test sittings. Please note that the latest timings, performance indicators and all required transcripts are now available in the Test Guidance manuals in MARK rather than as separate documents on this webpage.
Important information (February 2020)
NTS Assessments updates (December 2019)
As of 28th February 2020, the reports that you run in MARK for the Spring 2020 and Summer 2020 papers feature the updated performance indicators. You can also rerun Autumn 2019 reports for KS1 Reading and KS1/KS2 Mathematics to retrospectively apply the revised performance indicators. A manual correction needs to be applied to Autumn 2019 KS2 Reading results using the revised performance indicator thresholds from the February update document (or the Test Guidance manual) to see which band each pupil’s standardised score falls into. This is flagged in MARK.
