Thank you for purchasing the Complete Digital Solution. Here are the resources you'll need to get the best from your CDS package.
Select the option ‘recent’ and select the test you wish to see results for. After selecting the test, the list of report options will appear in the centre of the screen.
As part of your CDS package, you will have access to the Kirkland Rowell Light Touch survey which includes two sections for parents.
NGRT Form A is designed to be taken first, Form B should be then taken at a later date, with a gap of 3-6 months.
The Light Touch survey is free with the CDS package and is the basic survey without the academic subjects or unique questions. The questions cannot be edited.
With the Bespoke survey, you have the option of 18 additional questions and 4 bespoke questions which can be chosen and edited to suit the school; however this would come at an additional cost.
The CAT4 Combination report is available for combining scores from PT Series, NGRT and CAT4.
For PT Series and CAT4, the address is:
GL Assessment PT Team
DRS Bureau Division
42/43 Potters Lane
Kiln Farm, Milton Keynes
For CAT4 YL, NGRT and anything else:
GL Assessment Scoring Department
GLDS, Unit 28 Bramble Road
Techno Trading Estate
The scoring service takes up to 15 working days from the time we receive the tests.
NGRT does not have batch headers available, all scoring require is your contact details to be sent with the tests.
Years 3–7 can use these across their PT Series, CAT4 and NGRT tests. Please note that there is no level 08 for Progress Test in Science.
Yes, you can still run a report on those that have completed all parts of the test by selecting them via the tick box on the register. If other pupils complete the test at a later stage, you can then re-run the report to include all of them.
No, reports for paper tests are available on TRS (Testwise Reporting Service website). Once your paper tests have been marked our Scoring Team will send you an email with a link to the reports.
Anything prefixed with PASS 1-* is 4–7 years olds
Anything prefixed with PASS 2-*is 7–11 years olds
PASS 3-* is 11–16 years old
PASS 4-* is 16–18 years old
When you are logged into the Testwise platform, you click on the assessment which you would like a pupil to resit e.g. NGRT Form A, then you click on ‘register’ button which is on the right hand side of the screen below ‘your feedback’. Once you have done this your register will appear. To resit a test you select the pupil via the tick next to the forename then click Resit under ‘view details’
You can only delete pupils if they have not logged in to start taking a test. Once a child has started a test they cannot be deleted from the register, however if you do not want them to be included in the reports you can untick the box next to their name when you are running reports so that they are not included.
Teachers/staff members can set themselves up as a ‘Test pupil’ on the site and ensure that their Name and Grouping is significantly different to that of the children. This way they can easily pick themselves out in the list when running the reports and exclude themselves.
Yes you can, you run the report as normal.
No, as this is part of the standardisation of the test and was done according to set timings, the sections of CAT4 cannot be skipped. We would advise that if children have finished the section and have extra time they can go back and check their answers.
Year 1 and beginning of Year 2 (Age 5–6) use paper based tests. The digital test start at the end of Year 2 (age 7).
Should a pupil start mid-term our recommended test level would be for the pupil to start with the Autumn level test and then take the Summer test with the rest of the pupils.
Please bear in mind that this test has been set for pupils to take at the beginning of the year so the pupil may have already had a few months of additional teaching and so may perform slightly better on the Autumn test.
After uploading your pupils, the next step would be to download the app from the Apple® or Android® store. And the final step is to configure the teacher and pupil.
