QuickTest. Pick your level, then do as many of the 20 questions as you can in a set time, 2 minutes for example (though you could vary this depending on ability). Over a period of time, speed should increase, more questions should be answered correctly and confidence in manipulating numbers quickly should improve. Excellent for individual use or for class use. Each pack consists of 20 fully photocopiable tests at each of five levels, each level corresponding roughly to a level in the National Curriculum ranging from Level 3 through to Level 7.Each level consists of 10 EXCEL spreadsheets, each spreadsheet containing 2 tests. Each spreadsheet has been formatted to print out onto an A4 piece of paper, ready to photocopy.

QuickTest, topics tested and links to the National Curriculum.
QuickTest has been developed specifically with the National Curriculum in mind and has been extensively tested in a classroom situation..
The main focus is on the practice of arithmetic skills using pencil and paper, and as such the tests specify that calculators should not be used.
The following table sets out the areas of the National Curriculum which are covered by each pack.
Each pack contains 20 fully photocopiable tests for each of five different levels ranging from A tests which roughly correspond to level 3 of the National Curriculum through to E tests which roughly correspond to level 7 of the National Curriculum.
In the table below, you will find details of topics covered by each test. Test topics are cumulative, that is test B contains topics from those listed for test A and test B, test C contains topics from those listed for test A, test B and test C, and so on for tests D and tests E.
