What is this service for?
The aim of Primary Spelling Online is to provide a simple tool for children to improve their spelling with the minimum of parent help.
The online spelling tests cover primary school Key Stage 1 and 2 (ks1 & ks2) from reception to year 6.
Why is my spelling level lower for multiple choice & mixed tests?
Multiple choice is considered easier so your level is reduced by a factor.
