The government has released an update on the development of the new multiplication check for Year 4 pupils, to be introduced from the 2019/20 academic year. The update confirmed the following:
A national voluntary pilot will take place in June 2019. Schools can use this to familiarise themselves with the check before it becomes statutory in June 2020.
Schools will have a three-week window to administer the check. Teachers will have the flexibility to administer the check to individual pupils, small groups or a whole class at the same time.
The assessment framework for the check has now been released. This specifies its purpose, format, content and cognitive demand.
