Working in partnership with FFT Education in Trusts

Using CAT4 data alongside FFT Aspire to help set targets and measure progress in the absence of national data at transition across Years 7 and 8
How can we help
  • FFT Transition Service - Use CAT4 data to provide a consistent baseline at Year 7 and produce accurate GCSE performance estimates
  • Transition Service extended in 2022/23 - The Transition Service will allow secondary schools to display both CAT4 and Key Stage 2 SATs data on a single platform for the first time, enabling them to cross-reference the two datasets easily and giving them more choice and greater depth of information. Previously only available for Years 7 and 8, the service will now also be available for all secondary year groups
  • Easy to upload and analyse your data - Import your CAT4 data into Aspire and subject estimates and indicators are available one week later
  • Development underway to provide estimates based on CAT4 data from other year groups - More opportunities to set accurate targets
  • This service is only available to schools and Trusts in England
We are really pleased that GL Assessment has teamed up with FFT. Being able to triangulate CAT4, FFT and teacher assessment data has always been a key element of our approach
