As this is the first time you are ordering this product, you will need to order the 'school pack'. This includes access to the online recording and analysis tool for one academic year and one resource pack (including teacher guide).

If you wish to order extra resource packs so that more of your teachers/teaching assistants can conduct the assessment at one time, please indicate the number of additional packs below.

If you would prefer to administer the assessment using individual pupil record booklets, rather than using the online system, please indicate the number of packs of pupil booklets you require below, in addition to the school pack. (Please note you will still need to record the individual question responses for each child online to be able to receive the scaled scores and reporting).
