NFER Tests Suite 2 autumn, spring and summer

Optional tests for Years 3, 4 and 5 to help monitor pupil attainment and progress

Test outcomes and linking

As with all NFER Tests, Suite 2 results include age-standardised and standardised scores based on large and representative national samples.

As a result of extensive trialling, NFER Tests in reading, mathematics and grammar and punctuation will allow pupil progress to be measured.*

Progress within a school year

When used at two points in the school year, reading and mathematics tests can be used to evidence progress made in the year. For example, if a pupil takes the Year 3 autumn reading test in September and the Year 3 summer reading test in June, then the amount of progress made in these eight months can be monitored.

Progress year on year

When used together, reading and mathematics summer tests will enable progress to be monitored from one year to the next. For example, teachers will be able to look at the amount of progress made by a pupil who took the Year 3 summer reading tests and then the following year took the Year 4 summer reading test.
