Is there a list anywhere on here of question types and their numbers (particularly Susan Daughtrey numbering?). I am trying to analyse where DS might have a problem but don't have a shorthand for type numbers. I don't really mean, for example Bond type x = Daughtrey type y, but Daughtrey type 3 = two words, move a letter from one word to the other.

The reason I am asking is that the Bright Sparks papers (not sure they are called that any more) have a grid at the front to fill in how many of each type DC got right and it would be useful to do the same for the Learning Lab ones (which incidentally he found harder than Bright Sparks).

The Bright Sparks papers are still called that, and they contain the 21 types. There is a quick reference guide to them here: http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/advice ... t-a-glance

I don't think anyone has ever bothered to reference Susan's 35 types because they don't fit with GL Assessment/NFER types for the most part.

The Learning Lab books do have some tricky vocab in them, so that may have been his downfall.

Thanks - maybe I'll spend some time tonight mapping the types over a glass of wine! We did find some of the vocab in the Learning Labs quite old fashioned.

7 Similar / Opposite meaning
8 Complete the word
9 Three letters grid
10 Connection between words
11 Grouping words
12 Odd one out
13 One in the middle
14 Find the word based on given letters
15 Alphabet based questions
16 Letter connections
17 Sort the words in alphabetical order
18 Make sensible sentence
19 Anagrams
20 Missing (3) letters in a word
21 Insert a letter
22 Make a word
23 Reading information
24 Maths - word problems
25 Place numbers into equations
26 Number series
27 Missing digits
28 Related numbers
29 Tabulated data
30 Miscellaneous mathematical probs
31 Identify true statement
32 Word letter codes
33 Word-number codes

Thank you. We only use 21 types in Buks, but I should be able to tie these up with the list Sally Anne pointed me towards. Funnily enough I looked on another 11plus forum and someone had asked the same question!
