School improvement and progression

Standardised assessments conducted regularly enable local authorities to trace the progress of every pupil, every class, and every school. Reports flag issues across schools and measure the impact and progress of interventions.
How can we help
  • Baseline and understand core ability and potential - Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT4)
  • Identify any barriers to learning through understanding attitudes to school - Pupil Attitudes to Self and School (PASS)
  • Compare year-on-year attainment and progress in English, maths and science - Progress Test Series (PT Series)
  • Establish, maintain and monitor reading age and skills with nationally standardised benchmarks - New Group Reading Test (NGRT)
  • Reports specific to your region, and the support of a dedicated team of advisers, to ensure you get the most from your data
NGRT testing meant we had that baseline and were able to see where the biggest gaps were.
