  • A good idea but unfortunately a little too hard. Some of the questions are not a the correct level for the New Curriculum. No where does it states our children need to know the names of the 4 most recent human ancestors. Not that is does them harm to know, it's great if they can learn it but these tests cannot be used to gather a good understanding of where a group of children are at in relation to curriculum expectations.

    If you compare the government released sample of a science sampling tests for ks2 you can see a big difference in the expectation.

    • Thank you for the swift response and positivity. Having reviewed the test for a second time I must unfortunately point out some errors and misconceptions. Question 9 is very misleading and could cause a rise in misconceptions with the children. Neanderthals are not a ‘stage’ in human evolution (we interbred with them!) so they cannot really be placed correctly as they lived at the same time as homo-sapiens. I think a more useful question would be to show the children a diagram of an ‘evolution tree’ and ask which species arose earliest. It is a confusing question and I am not sure the children should really be tested on knowing the stages of human evolution seen as it is not mentioned in the national curriculum. Also I think in question 11 b and c the word ‘evolution’ should be swapped with ‘selective breeding’ as they do not make sense and I find it very difficult to answer myself!
      Hope this is useful.
