National Reading & Numeracy Tests
Profion Darllen a Rhifedd Cenedlaethol

Children in Years 2 to 9 now take national tests in reading and numeracy each summer. It is really important that your child is in school to take the tests.

 

Online Personalised Assessments will be phased in over a three-year period as part of the Welsh Government Tests for pupils in Years 2 to 9.

Reading:

The reading tests are made up of short questions based on two or more texts. Some of the questions check how well the text has been understood, others aim to find out if children are able to make judgements about what they are reading.

 

Numeracy:

There are two kinds of numeracy tests. 

  1. The procedural test measures skills in number, measuring and data skills. 
  2. The reasoning test measures how well children can use what they know to solve everyday problems. 

 

NATIONAL TESTS 2019:
The paper based National Reading and Numeracy (Reasoning) tests will take place between
Tuesday 7th May and Tuesday 14th May 2019. We kindly request that you make every effort not to arrange holidays during this important period.
