Next steps


I want a National Test-style end-of-year assessment:

Set A Optional Tests papers and print manuals will remain available to purchase. They are suitable for use as an end-of-year, National Test-style, summative assessment.


I want a National Test-style assessment that enables me to measure termly progress:

We recommend that you move over to NTS Reading and NTS Maths Assessments which are based on Optional Tests content, but with the added benefit of being standardised. This means that you can compare pupil performance against national averages. There are three papers available per year: autumn, spring and summer. They are perfectly complemented by GAPS, our termly standardised GPS papers.


I want to speak to someone:

If you have previously bought Set B or Set C Optional Tests papers, please contact your local assessment consultant who will help with the transition and provide details of available discounts.
