After attempting a few of the literacy and numeracy practice tests for the QTS exam I decided I needed to do a bit more revision. Thankfully, I have a year to master the art of grammar and punctuation before I take the dreaded tests.
I already own the recommended books, but want some more practice without having to pay anything. My aim is to test a few numeracy and a few literacy websites that aim to help with key skills whilst working through the books.
The official site is:
http://www.education.gov.uk/schools/careers/traininganddevelopment/professional/b00211213/numeracy – numeracy practice test and resources
http://www.education.gov.uk/schools/careers/traininganddevelopment/professional/b00211208/literacy – literacy practice test and resources
The first sites I am going to try is
http://www.grammar-monster.com – a basic literacy site with tests
http://www.aplusgamer.com/index.jhtml?partner=^AF4^xdm005&gclid=CNKG8tmYibcCFWXJtAodU3QAxg – an online game app for maths and english
http://keyskills4u.excellencegateway.org.uk/ – a key skills site that requires a free login but provides feedback
and http://www.tes.co.uk/teaching-resources/ – a website for teachers or those hoping to become teachers.
I will document my success and failures here. anyone who has any suggestions please do share or let us know how you yourself get on too.
Best wishes for the week
