Practice National Adult Literacy and Numeracy Tests

A review of websites offering practice Key Skills/National Adult Literacy and Numeracy Tests

If you're helping learners to prepare for the National Tests in Adult Literacy and/or Numeracy, you may find it helpful to let them try several of the practice tests that are available. Remember that the same test is used for the Adult Literacy/Key Skills Communication and Adult Numeracy/Key Skills Application of Number!  You may also like to create your own tests around the areas that need practising - find out more under 'ItemBank' below.
