Personalised assessments

Have you planned personalised assessments for this year yet? The assessments are statutory during this school year, and the requirements are set out in the Administration Handbook for 2021 to 2022.  Don’t leave it too late to make the most of the formative information they provide.

Are your learners using the familiarisation assessments?

All learners should use familiarisation assessments ahead of taking the live assessments. They can be used at any time and are accessed by learners by clicking » Personalised Assessments » Familiarisation assessments whilst logged into their Hwb account. Learners will see and try the different question types and how to navigate through the assessments.  This is especially important for Numeracy (Reasoning) which includes hints and audio clips.
