Analysis and Marking Service

A snapshot of pupils performance

NFER Analysis and Marking Service (AMS) is a completely independent analysis and marking service for primary schools who use NFER Tests in summer 2018. It provides comprehensive analyses of pupils’ performance and progress, in a format suitable for sharing with staff, governors and Ofsted.

Key benefits

The Analysis and Marking process

NFER manages every stage of the marking and analysis of your NFER Tests. The papers are marked by our experienced panel of markers.

We analyse the results and produce a full, tailored report containing question level data profiles for each pupil including raw scores, age-standardised scores, and standardised scores.

The data allows easy comparison between pupils, between groups of pupils (e.g. boys vs girls), and against national data. You also receive a comprehensive profile for your school.
