The key stage 3 (KS3) information and communication technology (ICT) test
is an on-screen assessment that is being developed by the Qualifications and
Curriculum Authority (QCA) under contract to the Department for Education
and Skills (DfES). It is intended that this test will be run on a statutory basis
from 2008; providing a summary of every child’s attainment in ICT at the end
of the lower secondary phase on schooling.
