Part 4: The QTS Interpreting Statistics Test

Tips for the written part of the QTS Numeracy Skills Test What kind of questions do trainee teachers get in their QTS Numeracy Skills Test about interpreting statistics, and how should they approach them?
In the fourth video in the series, maths consultant Malcolm Shay looks at some of the statistics questions in the QTS Numeracy Skills Test. He explains that, of all the maths in the test, this is probably the least familiar to non-maths specialists, as it?s about interpreting data displayed in tables of figures, charts or graphs. However, he points out that it?s important for teachers to understand information presented in this way as it will be about real pupils and their actual achievements.
Malcolm then works through a sample question about a scatter graph, showing some techniques that may be useful when answering other questions.
