NGST Sample Reports

New Group Spelling Test (NGST) is an ideal screening and monitoring tests for groups of pupils. NGST scores can be bought to life through a variety of diagnostic reports, enabling teachers, SENCos and other educational professionals to build a comprehensive picture of a pupil and their spelling ability. Reports also contain an indicator of likely achievement at Key Stage 2 and GCSE. The following reports are available as part of our NGST Scoring & Reporting Service:
