The New Group Spelling Test (NGST) is an adaptive assessment which allows termly monitoring of spelling skills. When combined with our New Group Reading Test (NGRT) you can assess reading and spelling together in under an hour.
Questions are delivered via audio and the assessment is adaptive – meaning that questions change based on student’s responses, so more able students can be challenged while weaker students are kept engaged. The reports provide the Standard Age Score (SAS), allowing you to compare each student’s performance with other children of the same age, and track progress. Reports also provide customised implications for teaching and learning as well as offering practical help with next steps in the classroom.
