National Literacy and Numeracy Tests 3rd - 10th MAY 2017
Mount Pleasant Primary School will be administering the National tests for Literacy and Numeracy between 3rd and 10th May 2017. It is vital that all children are in school on these days. The tests will last about an hour each and are constructed so that our younger learners will be able to sit them in 'chunks'. They will be delivered on a year group or small group basis. The reading test will consist of a number of passages followed by short, closed response and multiple choice type questions. There are two numeracy tests; a procedural test for knowledge and understanding and a reasoning test for application of skills and problem solving. The tests will be marked in school and learners' raw scores will be converted to standardised scores. The standardised score will show how your child's performance in the test compares to other children of the same age who have sat the test in Wales. Test results and comparative data will be sent out at the end of the year. Parent workshops will be arranged prior to the testing period, we hope you will be able to attend.
Please find below the links to Learning.gov.Wales where you can find Numeracy and Reading sample materials to support your child at home.
