Is the scoring on the Content Tests correct?

Sound Waves

You may come across some activities in the Content Tests which ask you to score students out of a higher number than seems necessary: the higher number is correct.

For example, in activity 1 of the Year 2 Content Test we present students with six images and ask them to Colour the picture if you hear apple in the picture name.’

Even though only four of the pictures contain apple, we score the activity out of six because it’s important that students can recognise whether the sound is present or not. Therefore, if students colour four correctly and leave two uncoloured, they achieve a score of six.
