We are looking for a few more classes to trial our new upcoming Level 1 assessment resources.
 

When we develop new resources, we pilot and trial our items with groups of students. Trials are conducted online, with students working individually or small groups. 

They involve students working online with whatever devices they usually use in class or at home (desktop, laptop, tablet).
