Our adaptive test system is our recommended newer way of delivering tests to children. The adaptive system uses AI to schedule tests for each child. It moves them up and down difficulty levels automatically based on their performance and chooses the optimum wait time between taking each test depending on when your child's exam date is.
The adaptive system reduces the need for parent intervention, saving you time and making it easier to know that your child is working at the correct level for them.
We know some parents prefer the control of choosing tests themselves so we continue to offer our older non-adaptive syetem too.
Adaptive system 10 - 20 minutes per test, approximately 1 minute per question.
The difficulty of an adaptive test is differentiated by the number of stars for that test. Maths and English have 5 star levels, 1 being the easiest level, 5 the most difficult level. VR and NVR have 3 star levels from 2 stars to 4 stars.
Children move up and down adaptive test levels, for each subject, depending on their current performance
Non-adaptive system 10, 20 or 50 minutes per test, approximately 1 minute per question.
