The ERC is currently standardising new reading and maths tests for primary school pupils (from 2nd to 6th class). A small number of free tests are available on a first come, first served basis to interested schools. The tests have to be taken before the end of the current school year (i.e. June 2018), with no cost to schools. To avail of the free tests – delivered online – schools must be able to supply their own digital devices (e.g., laptops, iPads, etc) and have internet broadband connectivity. Information about these tests and the requirements for trying them out can be accessed here. An application form can be accessed here.
