Interactive test FAQs

What are the differences between the print and interactive tests?

The print and online versions of the tests are identical, so schools are able to use them alongside each other. The interactive versions of the tests are accessed via MARK and are marked automatically so that teachers do not need to fill in the marksheets and can access MARK’s reports and analysis immediately, saving valuable time.

Questions have been adapted for suitability to use on a screen rather than paper. We advise you to continue to maintain test conditions regardless of whether the tests are being completed on paper or on screen to ensure reliable results.

 

What happens if we lose our internet connection during a test?

If the internet connection is lost, your students will still be able to continue the test, as the whole test is downloaded when the test is started. You should ensure that the connection is re-established before clicking ‘End Test’, however, to ensure we receive the pupil’s answers.

 

What happens if the browser window is closed mid-test?

We save the pupil’s progress each time they move between questions. If the window is accidentally closed, they should re-enter the test as described in the Starting a test section, above. After entering the test code and verifying their date of birth, we will take them to the last point in the test at which we saved their progress.
