KS3 D&T Baseline Test Pack 2nd Edition


Product Code: BTDT1a

This is the second edition of our popular Key Stage 3 Baseline Test Pack for Design and Technology. This edition presents an updated version of the initial two test pack with six new questions and an additional baseline numeracy test to match the increased focus on numeracy in the D&T curriculum. A substantial price discount is available for existing users of the first edition of this pack - please see dispatch and payment details at the bottom of the page.

This pack contains two alternative tests for accurate Key Stage 3 baselining in Design and Technology. These tests are designed to provide summative assessment at the end of Key Stage 2. For example, when a pupil is making a transition from primary to secondary school. Each test presents twelve multi-part questions covering every bullet point/topic area of the 2014 Key Stage 2 National Curriculum for Design and Technology.

The tests can be used by secondary teachers to evaluate what proportion of the national curriculum requirements have been addressed in primary school by each pupil. They can also be used in conjunction with our End of KS3 D&T Test Pack (Product Code BTDT2) to demonstrate progress made across Key Stage 3.

This resource includes:

  1. Two baseline test papers, each mapped directly to the 2014 KS2 National Curriculum for Design and Technology.
  2. Mark schemes for each paper.
  3. A pupil mark and feedback sheet.
  4. A set of four worksheet based tasks that can be used in cases where schools require a baseline level to be set for each pupil.
  5. NEW - A baseline numeracy test for D&T, testing Maths skills directly linked to the subject.
