Helping computer science teachers take control of their workload. My refreshingly different teaching resources enable you to teach great lessons that help your pupils engage with the subject matter. I’m an experienced teacher and HoD and professionally create resources through my company Nichola Wilkin Ltd. My book “Python by Example” published by Cambridge University Press has been a runaway success. Download my free resources now to see why I am one of the most popular authors on TES.

This test is to be given to year 7 pupils to test their current knowledge of key computing areas. This will help you understand their current strengths and weaknesses at the beginning of year 7 and includes a useful spreadsheet which not only highlights pupils understanding but also groups it by class and even primary school to help you inform your feeder schools which areas they need to work on and may need additional help with and which areas they have covered well. The key skills covered in this test are: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, saving files, programming, using the internet, e-safety and computer theory.

Due to popular demand, I have interpreted the marks awarded to the old-style level descriptors (i.e. if they score 30 on the test or 45%, this would be equivalent to a 4C). Hope this helps.

2A - 5 marks (7%)
3C - 10 marks (15%)
3B - 12 marks (18%)
3A - 20 marks (30%)
4C - 28 marks (42%)
4B - 36 marks (54%)
4A - 42 marks (63%)
5C - 48 marks (72%)
5B - 54 marks (81%)
5A - 60 marks (90%)
6C - 64 marks (96%)

PLEASE NOTE: This test is a paper-based test, if you would prefer the pupils to fill in an on-line document which can be either printed or sent to you electronically then please see our other set of resources from https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/computing-year-7-baseline-assessment-on-line-version-11355832
