This test is delivered orally, so assesses pupils’ numeracy skills rather than their reading ability, making it ideal for use with poor readers. It can also be used with older, less able pupils at Key Stage 3. Quick to give and easy to mark, with parallel forms A and B to enable re-testing to assess progress, the test takes about 30 minutes or less to administer to class groups or individual pupils.
Please be advised that orders of Basic Number Screening Test are restricted to schools/institutions only. Please supply an institutional address when you place your order as we are unable to fulfil orders with a private address.
