Aligned with the KS3 computing and GCSE computer science curricula, these online multiple choice tests are designed for pre and post teaching assessment.
You'll receive two tests for each topic. The first test should be issued before you start teaching, and the second should be issued once you've finished teaching.
The self-generating results will reveal your students' strengths and weaknesses and allow you to create tailored lessons that propel them towards exam success.
Written by expert computing teachers and approved by BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, these subject knowledge assessments are the first of their kind to be quality-assured by the NCCE.
Our KS3 and GCSE assessments cover the breadth and depth of the national curriculum.
With a national benchmark to guide you, you can be confident that you're mapping student progress in an accurate and reliable way.
All our tests are online self-marking assessments, which means you won't have to do any additional work.
Once students have completed the test, you'll get instant access to their results.
The NCCE offers online and face-to-face training for computing teachers, as well as research, guidance and free resources like lesson plans, worksheets, and whole schemes of work.
With generous bursaries available for state-funded schools and colleges, we can help with the costs of travel and supply cover so you can take time out for essential professional development.
