-- Good news for trainee teachers who are preparing for the QTS Numeracy Skills test. The QTS Numeracy app that has been developed by Academic Owl Tuition can help them practice better so they can achieve the speed and accuracy that are needed for passing the test. In fact, the app has been designed with these trainee teachers in mind.
The Numeracy Skills Test that is a computerized test, consists of two sections. Section 1 contains mental arithmetic questions and section 2, written questions that are also called ‘on-screen’ questions. Section 1 is an audio test and hence, those who take up the test must hear through headphones. They can not use calculators but they can jot down and do the working. Every question must be answered within a fixed time. The candidate's ability to do mental calculations of fractions, percentages, conversions, time and measurement is tested with these questions.
Section 2 can be in various formats like multiple choice questions, multiple response questions, questions that require a single answer, and those in which candidates may have to ‘point and click’ on the right response. Candidates can use the ‘on-screen’ calculator. The purpose of these questions is to test the ability of candidates in interpreting and using statistical information. They are also for testing if the candidates can identify trends, make comparisons and are able to draw conclusions by interpreting charts and tables.
Both the sections require speed and accuracy and that is the reason this skills tests app has been developed. The app consists of 8 Mental Maths tests that may help interested trainee teachers revise and improve in various areas of Maths required for the QTS test.
Academic Owl Tuition has brought out the new version 1.1 of the QTS maths app also for supporting the QTS Numeracy skills Test. In this New Version, a few answers have been corrected, slight modifications in the main menu have been effected and the timer on the questions has been removed.
This mental maths app requires iOS 7.0 or the latter versions for using. It is Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. It is also optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus.
