Overview

Verbal Reasoning Test Series (VRT)

Purpose: Assess pupils' ability to reason via the medium of language.

 Age: 8-13

Time: 30-45 minutes

Administration: Individual; Group

The Verbal Reasoning Test Series (VRT) measures a pupil’s ability to engage with the language medium in order to identify their wider reasoning ability and potential.

Verbal Reasoning highlights pupils’ skills in verbal thinking above and beyond their formal literacy abilities and can be used alone or as part of a wider assessment program. The results provide teachers and SENCOs with an indication of how a pupil assimilates new information that may not be evident from their usual class work.

You will obtain a measure of your pupils’ potential to learn across the curriculum using the English language.

Non-Verbal Reasoning Test Series

Purpose: Assess pupils' ability to engage in key reasoning processes with context-free visual information

Age: 8-14

Time: 30-45 minutes

Administration: Individual; Group

Non-Verbal Reasoning involves no reading, so can provide insight into the abilities of pupils who think more easily in images than words and those who have limited reading skills, for example, dyslexics, poorly motivated pupils who have not learned to read, or those who speak English as an Additional Language (EAL).

The designs used within the tests are also not culturally specific and involve very little mathematical knowledge so that only reasoning skills are assessed.

By testing such basic learning processes these assessments can provide valid indicators of future academic performance in certain subjects including Mathematics, Science, and Design and Technology. A short practice test ensures that all pupils understand what is expected of them before they start the NVRT.

Benefits

  • It is suitable for pupils with English as an Additional Language (EAL)
  • Results can be used for individual target-setting and to inform teaching strategies.
