The S1/S2 baseline assessments consist of the following sections:

Vocabulary:  Pupils are presented with a series of multiple choice questions designed to test their ability in vocabulary. 

Mathematics: The questions include fractions, decimals and shapes problems, amongst others. Like the Vocabulary score, the Maths score is an excellent predictor of later academic achievement.      

Non Verbal: including Proof reading and PSA (Perceptual Speed and Accuracy)

Skills: including Cross sections, Block Counting and Pictures
