Progress Test in Science for Independent

Track student attainment and progress in science.

The Progress Test in Science (PTS) enables you to accurately measure how your school and your students are performing – student by student, class by class and year by year. The easy-to-use tests assess students’ scientific knowledge, helping you to understand current levels of attainment and identify any gaps in learning at both an individual and cohort level. 

Split into curriculum content areas of biology, chemistry and physics, the PTS assesses two dimensions of science learning:  

  • Science content knowledge and understanding  
  • Applying science skills 

The tests can be used at the start of the year for baselining and at the end of the year to measure and track progressA dedicated test is available specifically for use with students on entry to 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.
