What is the MTC?

The MTC is an online check (there is no paper version) completed during a three week period in June by pupils in year 4. The school can decide on what device type – tablet or computer (no paper option) – pupils will use to complete the check.

The MTC will be different for each and every child as the test features a set of 25 generated times tables questions.

Pupils will have 6 seconds to read the question, understand it, and enter a response. They will then receive a 3 second pause before the next question is shown.

So with 9 seconds for each question and 25 questions, the test will take 225 seconds or 3 minutes 45 seconds.

Questions will be made up from the 2-12 multiplication tables. The table shown here gives the maximum and minimum number of questions that will be presented to the pupils.

MTC with Emile mimics the DfE test.

As seen with the pilots in June 2019, a lot of children struggled with entering the answers in the strict time limits. We hope that by practising with MTC with Emile students will become comfortable with what they have to do. 

Times Tables with Emile includes much more. It includes an assessment module to determine students strengths & then gives them appropriate games and activities. They can play against friends or against students from across the world. For more information please see here
