New Group Spelling Test (NGST)

New Group Spelling Test (NGST) is an adaptive assessment which allows termly monitoring of spelling skills and progress. When combined with our New Group Reading Test you can assess reading and spelling together in under an hour. Customised implications for teaching and learning on each individual report offer practical help with next steps in the classroom.

NGST is also aligned to the new curriculum in England and all questions are delivered via audio.

How should I apply the New Group Spelling Test?

  • Evaluate spelling ability once per term with three forms to support termly testing
  • Inform teaching strategies

The New Group Spelling Test is in two sections:

Section 1 - tests five or six spelling rules in line with the new curricula.
Section 2 - tests a variety of different spelling rules using sentence completion tasks.
