National Reading & Numeracy Tests
Profion Darllen a Rhifedd Cenedlaethol


Children in Years 2 to 9 now take National Tests in Reading and Numeracy each year. 


Online Personalised Assessments are adaptive tests that get easier or harder depending on correct or incorrect answers.


Personalised assessments in Reading and Numeracy for learners in Years 2 to 9 are statutory and available to take throughout the school year. The purpose of the assessments is to help support progression in reading and numeracy skills.

After learners have completed these assessments, schools have access to feedback on learners’ skills, progress, age-standardised scores, and a range of reports to help plan teaching and learning.

Further information about Online Personalised Assessments can be found on the
Welsh Government website:


The reading tests are made up of short questions based on two or more texts. Some of the questions check how well the text has been understood, others aim to find out if children are able to make judgements about what they are reading.



There are two kinds of numeracy tests. 

The procedural test measures skills in number, measuring and data skills. 

The reasoning test measures how well children can use what they know to solve everyday problems.
