CDS is a powerful combination of digital assessment tools and data insights to give you the whole view of each pupil. The 11 nationally benchmarked assessments provide clear insight into reasoning skills, understand attainment levels in core subject areas and help identify barriers to learning.
Verbal, non-verbal and spatial reasoning skills are measured by Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT4).
Attainment and progress in core subjects is assessed by Baseline (on entry to the school), Progress Test Series (covering English, maths and science), New Group Reading Test (NGRT), New Group Spelling Test (NGST), and the Single Word Spelling Test.
Pupil Attitudes to Self and School (PASS), Dyslexia Screener, Dyscalculia Screener, and Kirkland Rowell Surveys can help to identify any barriers to learning.
