NFER Maths Tests

The NFER Tests range includes maths assessments for use across years 1-6. These tests have been developed by our assessment experts, in collaboration with teachers, and standardised with over 60,000 pupils. NFER Tests provide reliable standardised and age-standardised scores to confidently monitor attainment and progress. 

Our mathematics materials include:

  • a layout and format that reflects the national curriculum tests, to build familiarity and confidence
  • a variety of question and answer styles including written responses, circling, ticking and matching
  • access to a free and easy-to-use online analysis tool to generate instant reports.
  • diagnostic commentaries alongside the spring term materials to show common errors and to inform further teaching and learning.
