The Testbase mid-year tests have been compiled for teachers to assess their pupils halfway through the year. They are downloadable from the testbase gatekeeper and are available to all schools who have a complete package in testbase. They have been designed to satisfy the requirements of the new key stage 2 test specifications.

The arithmetic, grammar, punctuation and spelling questions are new. The reasoning questions have been adapted from previous optional and key stage 2 tests. The reading tests have been carefully selected from previous optional tests for years 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6; they include original, adapted and new questions.
