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 2023.

New Question Trial:
- 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.
- Trials are available for all Year 6 and Year 7 students covering a range of subjects including English, Maths, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning. Schools can choose to trial any number of these subjects. The tests are paper-based and each subject lasts approximately 50 minutes. The trial will take place over a two-week trialling window from 20th November to 1st December 2023.
- What’s in it for me? Schools taking part in these trials will be provided with raw scores and scale scores for all of their students, as well as a token of appreciation in the form of either a £100 gift voucher (Amazon or John Lewis), £250 of credits towards new assessments or £150 credits for renewal of existing assessments.*
