The Progress Test in English (PTE) enables you to accurately measure how your school and your students are performing – student by student, class by class and year by year.
Standardised on over 49,000 children, the easy-to-use tests assess students’ knowledge, understanding and application of technical English skills (spelling, grammar and punctuation) and reading comprehension (using age-appropriate fiction and information texts), helping you to understand current levels of attainment and identify any gaps in learning at both an individual and cohort level.
The tests can be used at the start of the year for baselining and at the end of the year to measure and track progress. A dedicated transition test is available, designed specifically for the start of secondary school.
Detailed reports for teachers analyse key dimensions of learning and provide a question-by-question breakdown to help identify those students who may need extra support, and in which areas.
