We are pleased to release updated versions of our Year 7 Term 2 achievement tests. The test is designed to assess students’ knowledge of a principled sample of phonics, vocabulary, and grammar (PVG) features. Changes have been made in line with enhancements made to the Y7 NCELP Schemes of Work prior to the start of this school year, and in response to feedback on the design and wording of questions in previous versions of these tests.
For teachers following the Schemes of Work, the ‘assessment week’ is Week 6 of Term 2.1.
Completing tests remotely
These ‘pen & paper’ tests can be completed by students either in class or at home. Word documents with clickable tick boxes and embedded links to Vocaroo are provided so that students can email their responses to teachers in one document. Pre-recorded audio files, with instructions and pauses built in, are provided for teachers to disseminate alongside the test papers.
The assessments have been uploaded to the NCELP Resource Portal:
Here, you will find, for each language:
- the achievement test
- the mark scheme
- the transcript for the listening sections of each test
- accompanying audio recordings, in mp3 format
- excel score logs, with a short instruction guide
- a practice test containing example questions and rubrics that closely mirror those used in the real test.
