Draft Key Stage 2 and Key stage 1 Mathematics Test Frameworks published

01 April 2014

The Standards and Testing Agency has published the draft Frameworks for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 national tests in mathematics.

The test framework is based on the national curriculum programme of study (2014) for mathematics, introduced for teaching in schools from September 2014 and first assessed in summer 2016. The framework specifies the purpose, format, content and cognitive demand of the key stage 2 mathematics tests. This document has been produced as a guide to the test development process, not to guide teaching. However, it does provide a useful insight into the way the tests are being developed, and in particular the expected standards for children in year 2 and year 6. ACME will be examining the guidance with interest.







The sample test materials will be released for schools in summer 2015.
