Using CAT4 in independent schools

The UK’s most widely used test of reasoning abilities for children aged 6 – 17+ years.

CAT4 is an assessment of developed abilities in areas known to make a difference to learning and achievement – namely verbal, non-verbal, quantitative and spatial reasoning – and provides you with an accurate analysis of potential student achievement.

Standardised on 25,000 students and verified every year based on analysis of a quarter of a million students, CAT4 provides you with valuable baselining data with national benchmarks. It gives reliable indicators for national tests and examinations, including Key Stage 2 indicators, 9-1 GCSE and A level indicators. CAT4 also provides the baseline for our Value-Added service, run in partnership with FFT, which allows you to measure accurately and fairly the impact your teaching has on your students.

This page provides information on CAT4 tailored to independent schools.
