Due to school closures we have received a number of questions from teachers about how our termly standardised test suites (PiRAPUMAGAPS and NTS Assessments) can be used outside of the recommended test window when schools re-open. We have put together a list of FAQs to help guide you when using the papers to understand what pupils have learned during this time, as well as which areas they may need more help with. Read FAQs.

  • Completely trust the content of the tests: they’ve been written by experienced National Test authors who have extensive knowledge of assessment and teaching.
