NFER Tests Teacher Guides
Teacher Guides are available to purchase for each year group and subject and provide comprehensive guidance for administering and marking the test. Teacher Guides also include access to our NFER Tests Analysis Tool to help you interpret your results.
NFER Tests Analysis Tool – NEW
The new NFER Tests Analysis Tool, available in beta version*, is an easy to use online tool to help you analyse and get the most from your raw NFER Tests data. The tool is free to access when you purchase the relevant Teacher Guide and replaces the Excel-based tools previously provided to support NFER Tests users. The new tool will allow you to record pupils’ marks from all NFER Tests for Years 1-5 for all subjects and year groups in a quick and efficient online area to enable easy comparisons.
The tool will automatically convert pupils’ raw scores to standardised and age-standardised scores, enabling you to:
- monitor pupil progress and attainment against national standards
- see how well pupils are progressing relative to other pupils in the year group
- generate age-related expectations from your summer tests to see if pupils are achieving expected standards.
You can generate a series of easy-to-interpret reports to help inform teaching and learning and in a format that is suitable for sharing with governors, parents and Ofsted.
Looking for the NFER Tests Analysis Tool?
The NFER Tests Analysis Tool is accessed via the Online Hub. If you’ve received your school login details and are looking to access the hub you can log in here. If you have purchased an NFER Tests Teacher Guide but do not have login details for the hub, send us an email and we will get in touch.
Note to NFER Tests customers
You are currently able to manually add historical data to the tool. In the autumn term we aim to release a pupil import function to make this process simpler for you. In the meantime, you are also able to continue using the Excel-based Progress Monitoring Tool and Question Grids should you wish to.
*The NFER Tests Analysis Tool has launched in beta, which means there will be a phased release of features and functionality and we will continue to enhance the site over the upcoming months.
