New Group Spelling Test

A fully adaptive, standardised, termly spelling assessment.

New Group Spelling Test (NGST) is an adaptive assessment which allows termly monitoring of spelling skills, benchmarked against the national average. When combined with our New Group Reading Test (NGRT) you can assess reading and spelling together in under an hour.

Questions are delivered via audio and the assessment is adaptive – meaning that questions change based on pupil’s responses, so more able pupils can be challenged while weaker pupils are kept engaged. The reports provide the Standard Age Score (SAS), allowing you to compare each pupil’s performance with other children of the same age, and track progress. Reports also provide customised implications for teaching and learning as well as offer practical help with next steps in the classroom.
