Progress Test in Science in primary schools

Track pupil attainment and progress in science.

The Progress Test in Science (PTS) assessments enable you to accurately measure how your school and your pupils are performing – pupil by pupil, class by class and year by year. The easy-to-use tests assess pupils’ 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 in the Autumn term for baselining and at the end of the year to measure and track progress as well as identify strengths and weaknesses to inform teaching 

Detailed reports for teachers analyse key dimensions of learning and provide a question-by-question breakdown to help identify those pupils who may need extra support, and in which areas.

This page provides information on the Progress Test in Science tailored to primary schools.
