We value GL Assessment’s tests enormously. They are central to our teaching and learning, and we continuously share the data with parents.

Measuring progress across a MAT

Organising a MAT of 30, quite disparate, primary academies is no mean feat. There was a real need for rigour and for quality assessment, and for standardising our practice. This was non-negotiable for us as a MAT.

Reliability in a world without levels

As Ofsted's report on 'Key Stage 3: the wasted years' said, 'The importance of a good start to a pupil's secondary school education cannot be overemphasised'. We couldn't agree more.' Here, Andy Daly, Principal of Swavesey Village College, explains how they introduced standardised tests following the removal of national curriculum levels.

Teaching vocabulary

Remember the episode of Friends when Joey discovers a thesaurus and signs his name as 'baby kangaroo'? Our Commissioning Editor, Lucy Hadfield, explains the importance of children having a wide, varied (and accurate) vocabulary.
