high or medium frequency words on the screen.
– Word Decoding - Select the target word from a choice of five
nonsense or unfamiliar words on the screen.

value, fractions or decimals.

• Developed Ability
– Picture Vocabulary – The pupil hears a word and selects the
picture that best represents that word from a choice of five
pictures on the screen.
– Non-verbal ability – A pattern appears on the left hand side of
the screen and the pupil must then find the corresponding
pattern within a larger pattern on the right hand side of the
screen. The pattern may have been translated in position but
will not have been rotated or reflected.

Hints and Tips
•
•
•
•
•
Make sure the pupils are comfortable
Remove any aids from the walls e.g. number lines
Make sure headphones are fully functioning
No pencil and paper
Have a break between assessments
• Check pupil details on the log in screen
Hints and Tips
• Give an introduction beforehand
– It should be explained to the pupils taking part that there is
nothing to worry about
– The pupils usually find the assessment is fun
– Show examples of questions
• If at any time they become confused, they should feel
able to ask you for guidance (as long as this takes the
form of explaining the procedure rather than providing
clues to help them answer the question).
Hints and Tips
• If the Admin account is logged in the pupils cannot log in
• If the pupils are logged in the Admin account cannot be
accessed
• If the Admin account is logged in another Admin account
cannot log in at the same time
