KS3 ICT Pilot

The Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) is currently piloting a new onscreen ICT test for key stage 3.

Schools who are not currently involved in the 2006 pilot can register their interest to participate in the 2007 pilot on the KS3 ICT Pilot website. The NAA advises schools to take part in the pilot as it will help prepare staff and pupils for the introduction of the statutory test in 2008.

Currently taking part?

For schools currently involved in the 2006 pilot, full guidance materials and demonstrations for managing and administering the tests are available from the KS3 ICT Pilot website. This includes a Quick Reference: Test Administration guide for easy access to key information.

Technical Specifications

Technical information and guidance for running the KS3 ICT Pilot test is held on the BECTA website.
