Practice National Adult Literacy and Numeracy Tests

An overview of legacy practice National Adult Literacy and Numeracy Tests and resources.

Practice National Adult Literacy and Numeracy Tests

The practice National Adult Literacy and Numeracy Tests were used to help learners to prepare for the National Tests in Adult Literacy and/or Numeracy, and for the tests for Key Skills Communication and Key Skills Application of Number. The tests are no longer available as they do not reflect the requirements of the new curriculum for maths and English. You can, however, view the legacy versions here

DfES Readwriteplus learning and diagnostic assessment materials

These resources were developed over the period 2001 to 2010, to support the national Skills for Life Strategy and other Skills for Life developments. PDF versions of the learning materials can be viewed here

Move On

This website was set up to support the national Move On Up Programme, which aimed to help adults brush up their basic skills and take the national tests. Eleven practice tests were developed as part of the National Test Toolkit. These were previously made available via the Move On website. You can view a PDF version of the Move On pack here

ItemBank

ItemBank was a DfES supported website that allowed learners to create their own tests based on a very large bank of questions covering Literacy/Communication, Numeracy/Application of Number and ICT at levels 1 and 2.
