Read out the following script, using exactly these words: Listen carefully to the instructions I am going to give you. When I have ﬁnished reading them, I will answer any questions. However, you will not be able to ask any questions once the test has begun. I will start by reading a practice question. Then I am going to ask you 30 questions for the test. On your sheet there is an answer box for each question, where you should write the answer to the question and nothing else. You should work out the answer to each question in your head, but you may jot things down outside the answer box if this helps you. Do not try to write down your calculations because this will waste time and you may miss the next question. For some of the questions, important information is already written down for you on the sheet. I will read out each question twice. Listen carefully both times. You will then have time to work out your answer. If you cannot work out an answer, put a cross in the answer box. If you make a mistake, cross out the wrong answer and write the correct answer next to it. There are some easy and some harder questions so don’t be put off if you cannot answer a question. 6. Stop and answer any questions that the pupils may have. 7. Read out the following: Here is the practice question to show you what to do. I will read the question twice, and you will have 5 seconds to work out the answer and write it in the answer box. Double the number on your answer sheet. Repeat the question. Double the number on your answer sheet. Wait 5 seconds (measured accurately using a clock or watch), then read out the following: Now put down your pen or pencil. 8. Ensure that the pupils have correctly placed their answers to the practice question on their answer sheets. Remind the pupils that, for some questions, information is provided in or beside the answer box. When they are ready to begin the test, tell the pupils that you will not be able to answer any further questions, or interrupt the test, once you have started reading the questions. 9. The questions are given on pages 3–4 of this booklet. The questions must be read out exactly as written. Start by stating the question number, then read each question twice before leaving the 5, 10 or 15 second response time. These timings must be strictly adhered to. 10. At the end of the test, tell the pupils to put down their pens or pencils, then collect their answer sheets. 5 Sourced from SATs-Papers.co.uk http://www.SATs-Papers.co.uk First published in 2006 © Qualiﬁcations and Curriculum Authority 2006 Reproduction, storage, adaptation or translation, in any form or by any means, of this publication is prohibited without prior written permission of the publisher, unless within the terms of licences issued by the Copyright Licensing Agency.
