About the service
With this service, NFER manages every stage of the marking and analysis of your NFER Tests.
In line with our high standards of practice, NFER have invested many years building an experienced panel of markers. Once the test papers are marked, we analyse the results and send a detailed report containing question-level data profiles for each pupil. This includes: raw scores, age standardised scores, standardised scores and age-related expectations*. The data is easily comparable in terms of individual pupils, background data (e.g. boys vs. girls) and national data.
Please note that because we employ an electronic marking system, marks will not appear on the test papers.
We require details of all the pupils being entered for the service, along with background information such as pupils’ gender, SEN stage, FSM status and key stage 1 results. This is captured in line with NFER’s strict confidentiality policy, and is used to create a more comprehensive analysis for the school. The more information provided at this stage, the more enhanced the level of analysis.
