COMPUTING Year 7 Baseline Assessment (paper based test)

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%)
