After taking all Tests (except Spelling Tests), a personalised Revision Journal is generated to help students revise and improve. A range of Activities and Learn Screens are gathered together based on their previous Test scores so students can focus on areas of improvement.

Miss Cook, teacher from Greyfriars Primary School in Norfolk has been chatting to us about the new Tests: “It’s fantastic to have the English Tests added to EducationCity. I already use the maths Tests regularly and not only are they great for getting students accustomed to the test format, they’re also really helpful when it comes to identifying which areas need more focus in my planning. I’m looking forward to trying them out with my students.”

To check out the new English Tests and use them in your lessons, log in to EducationCity.
