Team 4 - Term 1 2018


A PAT is a test which you usually do at the start of the year so the teachers know what your learning ability is. It helps the teachers decide what group to put you in for the following subjects: Maths, Writing and Reading.
There are 3 different PAT tests that you have to do each year from about Year 3 until you leave the school (Year 8). They are a Maths, Reading and Listening PAT test. You normally have about 45 minutes to complete each test. The test usually takes place in the middle slot (in between morning tea and lunch). 
We have to keep a book next to us in case we finish early. Once we have finished we can’t move around the room and make lots of noise because it’ll distract the people who are still working on their test, but it’ll also affect the ones reading their book. 
Before you start the test, the teacher hands out long strips of paper with your first name, surname, password for the test and the nzcer website.
