This article summarises the key points from the Standards and Testing Agency's (STA's) guidance on administering the multiplication tables check to year 4 pupils in 2021/22.
What do we have to do, and when?
Between 6 June and 24 June: Administer the check. The STA strongly encourages you to do it during the first 2 weeks of that window, so between 6 June and 17 June.
By 5pm on Friday 24 June: Submit your headteacher's declaration form
From 27 June: Access results (a total score for each pupil) in the 'view pupil results' section of the multiplication tables check service.
What does the check cover?
The check tests knowledge of times tables up to 12. There'll be an emphasis on the 6, 7, 8, 9 and 12 tables because these are considered to be the most difficult.
