About spring tests

Spring tests can be used on their own to measure attainment at a specific point in the spring term or used with the autumn and / or summer tests to monitor progress within the school year. The spring tests in mathematics, reading and grammar and punctuation are supported by diagnostic guidance, found in the mark schemes. This guidance is based on a trial where over 1100 pupils completed each test question. It identifies common errors and can support teachers in evaluating pupil understanding, comparing pupil attainment to others in the cohort and deciding on next steps for teaching. You can find an example of our diagnostic guidance here.
