Results

  • There is no pass or fail
  • All children receive an award which shows how many shields they have received.
  • The maximum score is five shields for each part of the test.
  • A result of one shield means a child can improve a lot in that skill.
  • Five shields mean that a child did very well in that skill and answered most questions correctly.
