National tests are compulsory and broken down into the following year groups and subjects:
- Year 2: Danish (reading)
- Year 3: Mathematics
- Year 4: Danish (reading) and English
- Year 6: Danish (reading) and mathematics
- Year 7: English

The aim of national tests is to strengthen the evaluation culture in primary and lower-secondary schools and to have a uniform tool that can evaluate across the country.
Information on test results is confidential, except for reporting results at national level. The tests are not covered by the law on open administration and therefore you cannot seek access to the results.
