World Class Tests

world-class-tests-thumbClient: Qualifications & Curriculum Authority (QCA)

We created interactive maths and problem solving items for 9 and 13 year olds for the QCA’s World Class Tests. The tests form part of World Class Arena, an international scheme for gifted and talented students.

Vivid Interactive developed the work for QCA from scripts provided by Leeds and Nottingham Universities. The tests can be auto-marked by computer. Each test consists of 12 maths and 5 problem solving interactions chosen from a pool of over 900.

‘For World Class Tests, Vivid Interactive programmed hundreds of highly innovative items in Flash. The items were high quality, both in their look and feel and in their functionality. Much of this was achieved as a result of Vivid’s flexibile ‘can-do’ approach to problem solving. Ultimately, the quality also had to satisfy QCA, instigator of the project, and did.’

Technology used

Flash interactions are hosted in a C++ shell, auto-marked with JavaScript algorithms. World Class Tests are delivered online as downloadable packages, for schools to install onto their network or standalone machines.
