We value GL Assessment’s tests enormously. They are central to our teaching and learning, and we continuously share the data with parents.

A safe, secure framework for Education

GL Assessment is the leading provider of formative assessments to UK schools, as well as providing assessments for overseas ministries and British, bilingual and international schools in over 100 countries worldwide.

For over 30 years, we have provided assessments for children's education, mental health and wellbeing. Recognising that technology is a driver for educational change, we have pioneered a powerful digital assessment system, which has delivered over 7 million online tests across the globe. We continue to innovate with adaptive testing and tablet-based assessments.

We believe in working with the largest possible pool of experts, to ensure that our assessments are rigorous, academically sound and in line with current best practice in education. As a result, we can list King’s College London, the University of York and the Australian Council for Educational Research among our partners.

Users of our assessments will attest to the comprehensive integrated support system we offer. We support schools from purchase of our assessments onwards, providing training, online support and other services. Watch our video to learn more.

Building a ‘whole pupil’ approach

We believe in a ‘whole pupil’ approach to assessment, one that covers ability, attitude and attainment to provide a holistic view of each pupil. This approach provides teachers and senior leaders with the data and insights to:

  • Inform teaching and learning
  • Track progress effectively
  • Provide evidence of progress and value added to Ofsted and parents
  • Identify barriers to learning and motivate students
  • Diagnose and monitor additional educational needs
  • Facilitate whole school improvement.
