Summary
  • What is the QTS Numeracy Skills Test and why do trainee teachers have to take it? What questions can they expect and how should they answer them? Maths consultant Malcolm Shay introduces the QTS Numeracy Skills Test and explains how trainees can't become qualified teachers without passing it. Although most teachers pass first time and nearly everyone passes it eventually, many trainees still worry about taking this test. In this introductory video, 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 looks at the mental arithmetic test, in which a pre-recorded voice reads out questions which have to be answered within a certain time, and at the on-screen written questions on interpreting statistics and general arithmetic
  • What's the best way for trainee teachers to prepare for their vital QTS Numeracy Skills Test to be sure they pass it? In this second video in the series, maths consultant Malcolm Shay and newly qualified teachers who have recently taken the test stress the importance of preparing for the Numeracy Skills Test well in advance--even if you're a maths specialist--as the style of some of the questions could take you by surprise. Malcolm explains that while your college may offer informal sessions and there are several books about preparing for the skills tests, the most useful support is on the TDA website itself--particularly the sample on-screen tests that you can work through at your own pace
  • What's the QTS Mental Arithmetic Test like and how should trainee teachers deal with the questions in it? In the third video in the series, maths consultant Malcolm Shay explains how many teachers in training find the mental arithmetic the most stressful part of the QTS Numeracy Skills Test, and newly qualified teachers who have recently taken the test recall their experiences. In the mental arithmetic test a pre-recorded voice reads the questions, which have to be answered in a set time; so Malcolm suggests some simple techniques to help reduce the stress and to deal with what are, in reality, fairly straightforward questions
  • What kind of questions do trainee teachers get in their QTS Numeracy Skills Test about interpreting statistics, and how should they approach them?In the fourth video in the series, maths consultant Malcolm Shay looks at some of the statistics questions in the QTS Numeracy Skills Test. He explains that, of all the maths in the test, this is probably the least familiar to non-maths specialists as it's about interpreting data displayed in tables of figures, charts or graphs. However, he points out that it's important for teachers to understand information presented in this way as it will be about real pupils and their actual achievements. Malcolm then works through a sample question about a scatter graph, showing some techniques that may be useful when answering other questions
  • What kind of arithmetic questions do trainee teachers get in their QTS Numeracy Skills Test and how should they tackle them? In the fifth video in the series, maths consultant Malcolm Shay looks at some of the general arithmetic questions in the QTS Numeracy Skills Test. He explains that, of all the maths in the test, this will probably be the most familiar to non-maths specialists, but that it's still important to read the questions carefully to work out exactly what it's asking. The questions tend to be set in school-based scenarios; and Malcolm works through a sample question about a teacher planning a school trip, showing some techniques that may be useful in other questions
