Single Level Tests: Report of First Three Test Sessions
This report on the single level tests pilot from QCA provides a factual account of the first three single level test sessions (December 2007, June 2008 and December 2008), setting out the test model, the test development process, the standard-setting processes and the outcomes.
The purpose of the pilot was to generate evidence on three linked issues, relating to the nature of the tests:
(a) Are there common knowledge and common skills which underlie both the key stage two and three programmes of study and is it possible to develop a single suite of tests?
(b) If such tests can be developed, how would standards be set?
(c) Is it possible to develop age-independent tests, which can be taken by students at any point from Year Three to Year Nine?
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
