Delivered face-to-face on two tablets

The one-to-one assessment is delivered using a ground-breaking dual tablet method – one for the pupil and one for the teacher. Not only is this format highly engaging it also supports fresh research on the increased use of tablets in UK schools.

Baseline’s immersive nature marks it out from more traditional, less engaging methods of assessment. However our rigorous standards during development ensure that, like all of our resources, it is an assessment that schools can rely on.

Measure a pupil's stage in language, literacy and mathematics

The assessment contains a mixture of oral and touch based questions, with full-colour illustrations that will be highly appealing to young children. There are three sections that measures literacy, language and mathematics on entry and, optionally literacy and maths at the end of Reception. Used together, the assessment provides a more rounded view of each pupil, part of GL Assessment’s commitment to provide teachers and teaching assistants with a ‘360 degree pupil view’, which compliments teacher’s observational assessments.
