We value GL Assessment’s tests enormously. They are central to our teaching and learning, and we continuously share the data with parents.Jill Wilson CBE, Headmistress, The Gleddings
Where there may be a question about a child’s perceived limited progress, it is useful to have this objective standardised data.
Gathering baseline data is where the use of standardised assessments has come in, and GL Assessment’s suite of assessments have really helped to provide that starting point.
The data was incredibly powerful to demonstrate that a lack of reading at home had led to weaker outcomes and even diminished life chances.
We felt that it was important to look at each of the pupils individually, as their experiences at home were so diverse that we could not be certain what they had learned over this period.
