New assessment questions

We’re currently testing new questions for our English and verbal reasoning assessments, and need your help and the help of your Year 7 and S1 students!

What is it?

For English we are testing a mixture of comprehension, punctuation, spelling and grammar skills. The test content is covered in the Key Stage 2 curriculum. Studies have shown that there is a high correlation between verbal reasoning and future academic achievement. These tests help measure a student’s academic ability.

Each test will have a test booklet and an answer sheet, which has been pre-printed with student and school details for easy administration. The test takes between 40-60 minutes.

What's in it for you?

As a thank you for taking part we are offering your school either:

  • £250 credits for Testwise, our online testing platform. This will allow you to try any of our digital assessments including CAT4 and PASS for free.


  • £100 Amazon or John Lewis voucher

If your school takes part, we’ll also mark the tests and provide feedback containing standard scores for all participating students and group ranking. Testing is taking place now until 12 July
