If you’re involved in administering the key stage 2 tests in 2017 to pupils with hearing or visual impairments, you should prepare by reading this modified test administration guidance (MTAG).

The guidance is to ensure that pupils using the modified large print (MLP) or braille versions of the tests, or who have a hearing impairment, can access the tests properly and that they are not at a disadvantage. It includes information about:

  • planning for the tests
  • receiving test materials
  • administering the tests
  • sending the completed test scripts for marking
