Easily assess your students with these tests that provide levelled assessments in the four key areas tested in the new Key Stage 2 Writing test, statutory from Summer 2013: grammar, punctuation, spelling and vocabulary. - Test 1 is for mid/late Year 5, to identify strengths and weaknesses in good time - Test 2 will help to pinpoint specific teaching needs in early/mid Year 6 and help to ensure that pupils are fully prepared for the Key Stage 2 test. The Teacher's Manual provides practical 'next steps' strategies as well as full instructions for giving the tests and interpreting results. Attractively presented and fun to do, the tests have been trialled on over 2000 pupils. The test results provide a skills profile that is securely matched to NC Writing levels, with scores that can be compared with average pupil performance, within each skill area and overall. Each test takes around an hour, including a short break.
