Progress Test Series

Making it easy for you to measure progress reliably in the wake of recent curriculum changes, the Progress Test Series (PT Series) in English, maths and science delivers a detailed, accurate, and clear picture of each pupil’s attainment and progress.

The test can be used year-on-year, takes less than 80 minutes to administer and is marked externally, helping to reduce teacher workload. The reports within Progress Test in English and Progress Test in Maths feature a new indicator showing potential student attainment at the end of KS2 and GCSE.
