Supported Marking Service for the Numerical Reasoning Tests for Years 7, 8 and 9

The Welsh Government has advised that in 2019/20 the statutory requirement for learners to take the Numeracy (Reasoning) paper test and for schools to report the results will be removed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. As part of this decision, NFER’s planned events for the Supported Marking Service for National Numerical Reasoning Tests will no longer take place this spring. The regional consortia ‘train the trainer’ events for the year 2-6 tests, and the supported marking sessions for the year 7-9 tests have now been cancelled in line with guidance from the Welsh Government.


We would like to thank you for your patience and understanding during this time as the situation has unfolded and plans have had to change. We would also like to thank you for your support at these events over the past years.
