The British Spelling Test Series Second Edition (BSTS2), assesses spelling at word, sentence and continuous writing level, and contains a wide mix of questions and tasks that test pupils’ ability to spell in different contexts – an element that is unique to this series.

The group test contains a mix of tasks some of which require pupils to draw on their own vocabulary and is straightforward to administer and score.

The series contains four tests, each with two equivalent forms that cover a range of year groups. Each test has a Teacher Guide explaining how to administer, mark and score the test, as well as how to use conversion tables to obtain standardised scores and spelling ages.
