The Progress Test Series (PT Series) assesses pupils’ true comprehension of the core curriculum subjects, helping you to identify which pupils need extra support and which will rise to more challenging targets. Using the insights from PT Series reports, you can be confident that the targets and interventions you set are matched to each child’s attainment.
Measures your pupils’ knowledge, understanding and application of the core subjects:
It’s statistically robust. The PT Series was standardised against a UK sample of over 100,000 pupils, with benchmarks verified every year based on analysis from half a million pupils.
The PT Series is a once-a-year progress measure, used at the end of the academic year. It can also be used twice a year to support individual interventions and teacher planning.
It supports school improvement initiatives by showing the relative performance of your pupils compared to national benchmarks. Testing year-on-year enables you to track individual and group progress. Transition tests provide an accurate profile of your pupils and sets a baseline from which to monitor progress.
The tests are designed for pupils aged 5 – 14 years and can be taken online (PC) or on paper. Results for digital tests are generated automatically on completion, paper-based tests are supported by GL Assessment’s marking and standardisation service.
Easy to access reports are matched to the needs of different stakeholders, for groups, individuals and parents, plus Excel reports and KS2/GCSE indicators.
Over half a million pupils take the PT Series each year. Because the data is robust, it supports feedback and planning discussions with senior leaders, pupils and parents.
