How to access your child's test results?

Further information about Online Personalised Assessments can be found on the
Welsh Government website:


The reading tests are made up of short questions based on two or more texts. Some of the questions check how well the text has been understood, others aim to find out if children are able to make judgements about what they are reading.



There are two kinds of numeracy tests. 

  1. The procedural test measures skills in number, measuring and data skills. 

  2. The reasoning test measures how well children can use what they know to solve everyday problems.
