Help us keep our assessments up to date

GL Assessment maintains an ongoing programme of trialling and standardisation studies to ensure that our assessments are as up to date, relevant and robust as possible. Trialling our questions on real students allows us to use the very best questions for our assessments and enables us to develop brand new types of questions to keep our tests fair for all - read our blog to find out more.

Below are the details of our trialling and standardisation studies scheduled for 2022.

  • Trials are available for all Year 6 and Year 7 students in Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning, Spatial Reasoning, Maths and English. Schools can choose to trial any number of these subjects. The tests are paper-based and each subject lasts approximately 50 minutes. The next trial is taking place over a two-week trialling window from Monday 21st November - Friday 2 December 2022.
