What is the QTS Numeracy Skills Test and why do trainee teachers have to take it? All queries are answered in this introduction to the test, including the type of questions that will be asked and how to answer them.
Maths consultant Malcolm Shay introduces the QTS Numeracy Skills Test and explains how trainees can't become qualified teachers without passing it.
Malcolm explains the purpose of the numeracy test, which is taken on a computer, and he shows some examples of the different kinds of questions.
He explains how the test comes in two parts: a mental arithmetic test, in which a pre-recorded voice reads out questions which have to be answered within a certain time, and an on-screen 'written' questions on interpreting statistics and general arithmetic.
