Why trust NFER Tests

We are proud to have supported the education community for over 70 years, through reliable research and assessment. As the use of robust assessment is an important part of effective teaching and learning, assessment forms an integral part of what we do.

Our NFER Tests range is:

  • the end result of extensive review, trialling and analysis
  • written in-house by a team of assessment experts
  • written in collaboration with teachers
  • based on a deep knowledge of children’s development and curricula.

Our materials are developed by an in-house team of assessment specialists, many with teaching backgrounds. This team has a wealth of experience in developing assessments, both statutory and non-statutory, and this experience, alongside teacher feedback, helps ensure that NFER Tests are of the highest standard.

When schools choose NFER Tests, they can be confident they are choosing materials that are based on many years of assessment research. Find out more about our robust development process here.
