Roi Package

Post-Primary Assessment Package

A selection of assessments to support post-primary schools in Ireland in monitoring and assessing 1st year pupils.

These assessments were chosen specifically with transition in mind, to help you to baseline your new pupils accurately and then track progress through Junior Cycle. Together they provide a whole pupil view to inform teaching strategies. 

Included are: Cognitive Abilities Test 4, Irish Edition (CAT4) Level E, New Group Reading Test (NGRT) A and B, Progress Test in Maths (PTM) 11T, and the Pupil Attitudes to Self and School survey (PASS). 

CAT4 provides data on a pupil’s verbal, non-verbal, spatial and quantitative abilities. Assess and monitor a pupil’s reading attainment and progress with NGRT and their attainment level in mathematics with PTM. PASS identifies barriers to learning (such as low self-esteem) during the crucial 1st year. 

Choose from three options:  

Package 1: CAT4 Level E, NGRT A & B, PTM 11T, PASS 

Package 2CAT4 Level E, NGRT A & B, PTM 11T 

Package 3: CAT4 Level E, NGRT A & B
