National Numeracy (Reasoning) Test (on paper)

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the statutory requirements for learners to take the final paper-based test for Numeracy (Reasoning) and for schools to report the results were removed. An online personalised assessment of reasoning skills will be introduced in the 2021/22 school year.

Following the cancellation of the 2020 Numeracy (Reasoning) tests, schools that wish to use the papers as teaching and learning resources were given the opportunity in December 2020 to request copies for informal use only.

Schools that ordered these resources will receive their copies during March 2021.

These materials are for use as classroom resources only and are not statutory.

Standardised scores will not be available.
