How to get details for this year

If you want the details of this year's tests, including the access codes for each test, please send an email to

and I will send you the relevant information. Please include your name and school so that we can verify
that you are eligible to use the tests and make sure your school name is on the list.
Please also indicate whether you want access to the Primary or Secondary tests or both.

Security and location of tests
The access codes for each test can be obtained by email. See the details in the box at the top of this page. Please only give your pupils the details of how to access the test when they are about to do the test, to lessen the possibility of cheating.

The address which pupils need to go to to enter the access code is http://www.cimt.org.uk/projects/meptests/

Results and feedback from secondary-phase tests
It was originally anticipated that after each test is completed, the pupil will be presented with their result and a predicted grade for later qualifications based on various statistics developed by the CIMT. Several teachers said that they would prefer to give out predicted grades themselves at an appropriate time. In this round of tests, the result will be displayed to the pupils, and teachers will then be able to use a separate web page to analyse the result obtained. Details of this web page will be provided with the web addresses for the tests.

Collection and storage of results
Everyone who takes the test will have their result stored in an on-line database at the CIMT. Copies of each school's results will be made available to that school following an email request. We have not lost any data in this way, but we would still strongly recommend that you take a note of each pupil's mark when they have finished the test. It makes sense to take precautions just in case of a disaster!

Pupil preparation
Your pupils will probably not have taken a test on-line before. Even if they have, they will not have used the new algebra editing facilities which are built into the Algebra tests (1, 2 and 3). It is important that any pupils taking Algebra 1, 2 or 3 have viewed the information about the new algebra editing facilities at: http://www.cimt.org.uk/interactive/editors/editors.html and the page where they can test whether they can use the editors correctly at http://www.cimt.org.uk/interactive/editors/edittest.html. They can view these pages at any time but it might be worth looking at these in lesson time in case there are any problems. It is also important to treat the on-line test like any other; the same time-limits and rules on calculator use must still be applied.

Pupil information needed
Pupils will need to have the following information ready to fill in at the start of the test: Full name, school year, date of birth, gender, school name (will be selected from a list), Maths class (max 8 characters) and Maths teacher initials. It is important that they fill in all these details.

It would also be very useful if pupils could enter their MEP pupil code from previous years (if they have one).

System requirements
To use the on-line tests, your machines must meet the following requirements:
- Internet access
- Web browser must be Microsoft Internet Explorer 5/6, or Netscape Navigator 4.6x/4.7x (not version 6)
- Macromedia Flash Player 6 or higher must be installed for the browser you are using
- Javascript should be enabled in your web browser
- 'Requested' pop-up windows must be allowed - click here to see if this is the case.

You can check whether the on-line tests will work on your machine by trying the algebra editor test page which can be found at http://www.cimt.org.uk/interactive/editors/edittest.html. If the page functions correctly (including the "check" buttons), then you have everything installed.

Reporting problems
If you find any problems in the on-line tests, please contact us using the email link above, giving precise details of which page the problem occurred on and exactly what happened.

Alternatives to on-line testing
It is still possible to carry out these tests in the normal paper-based way. If you need master copies of the tests for photocopying, please contact Russell Geach at the Centre.
