Reformed Functional Skills – Online Sample Assessments

Sample Assessments

Our online sample assessments provide learners with an opportunity to practice taking an NCFE Functional Skills assessment on our online assessment platform.

It allows learners to embrace the online assessment experience, while attempting papers that give a true representation of our live assessments.

For maths assessments, learners can familiarise themselves with the online tool applications outside of an assessment sitting here.

We offer our sample assessments in three modes:

  • In-browser (online) – accessible via your web browser without the need to schedule in Secure Assess.
  • Online – ‘Practice’ test versions are available to schedule via Secure Assess, our online assessment platform.
  • Paper-based – downloadable from the individual qualification information page which you can find a link to here.

All sample assessments will be centre marked using the provided mark schemes, this allows you to identify learner’s strengths and weaknesses to ensure individualised skills plans can be made using the outcomes of the sample assessments.

For in-browser assessments, we recommend using these sample materials to gain learner familiarity with the NCFE online platform. If you wish to mark learner responses, you will need to capture this at the end of the sitting or take screen shots throughout to facilitate this.

We recommend our paper-based sample assessments as the best form for understanding a learner’s performance as this will allow you to go through the sample assessment with learners on completion.

You may also wish to consider Skills Forward initial assessment and diagnostic assessment as a tool to support your learner’s journey.
