NFER Reception Baseline Assessment

The practical, child-friendly baseline assessment

Sample reports and what the assessment can tell you

The NFER Reception Baseline Assessment provides much more than an overall scaled score for each child. There is a range of other outcomes which can be very useful for schools and practitioners.

Once the core components have been completed and the data has been entered onto the online system, the system will automatically calculate scaled scores and age-adjusted scores for each core component and overall. The reporting system provides a range of reports, including: Individual Pupil Profile Report (for schools), Cohort Profile Report and Individual Pupil Report (for parents). Should you wish to complete the optional Foundations of Learning checklist, the results will also be reported (separately). The use of any or all of these reports is completely optional.
