Oxford National Curriculum Tests

The paper based Optional and Progress Tests are now available as the Oxford National Curriculum Tests, published under licence by Oxford University Press.

The tests will continue to support you in accurately assessing your pupils’ knowledge and application of national curriculum content from Year 2 to Year 6, helping schools to:

  • Monitor pupil attainment – and check if children are on track to meet expectations
  • Inform future teaching – by quickly identifying areas for development or support
  • Benchmark results – comparing performance with thousands of pupils nationally
