    I work an international school.
    We need start-of-year tests so we can decide which level (2-5) kids are when they join our school so we can put them in the right groups.
    Should I just use past SATs papers or is there an alternative?
    Any tips gratefully received.

    [Shudder] What do you mean by 'the right groups'? Are you talking about interventions for reading or writing or...?

    Do not test them yet. Mixed ability until they are mentally settled. Emerging from lockdown into an exam ? Not for me. When the moment arrives to test sat paper as good as anything.
