    How much of the paper are the children expected to read themselves??

      Hi Julieark,
      Thank you very much for commenting! It's great to hear from you. In terms of this, I would follow similar rules to those you use in school for SAT's and teacher assessments. I hope this helps :)

    This is really great. Would it be possible to have any or all of these KS tests in Word as we work with Visually Impaired pupils and they would need modifying as simply printing them on A3 would not be good enough?

    A great I have assessed the children, and marked the scheme. How do I apply their results to the new curriculum emerging/expected/exceeding scale? Is there a simple way to do this other than cross referencing to each child's tracking sheet? I am of course looking to save time rather than create more work for myself!

    Are pupils supposed to do both tests on each paper (ie 4 tests)? Or are they differentiated? Cant find it in the guidance.
