Pixl tests too hard

    Is anyone else using pixl and the tests? We have just carried out tests and the reading test for year 3 and 4 were extremely difficult. Have asked why we are doing tests which aren't age appropriate but haven't yet had an answer. Any comments would be helpful.

    I only have experience of the end of KS2 PiXL tests, but I agree with you that the questions themselves are noticeably harder than the real thing, being a Y6 teacher. The reading texts are harder, and the Maths reasoning questions are substantially more taxing. However, I've also noticed that on occasion the markschemes are a little more generous that the real NCTs.
