Find out what onscreen tests are available for Edexcel Functional Skills, and how you can start offering them. For an overview of Functional Skills assessment methods, see About Functional Skills.
In addition to fixed assessment opportunities throughout the year, we also offer onscreen, on-demand tests for Edexcel Functional Skills in English (Reading and Writing) and Mathematics across Levels 1 and 2.
Sets of sample onscreen assessments ('Practice Tests', which are past papers, and 'Sample Assessment Materials') are available for you to download and save to your computer.
These downloadable tests allow you to produce PDFs showing student answers, which can then be marked using the mark schemes also available below.
To run these sample tests, you'll need to extract them in full from the .zip files, and select 'start'.
