Progress Test in Maths (PTM) is a standardised assessment of pupils’ mathematical skills and knowledge including number, shape, data handling and algebra. This is designed for use year on year to support teachers in benchmarking student’s maths knowledge, and measure their progress over time. This can help in identifying those in need of extra help, as well as those who are particularly able.
*Information on progress is available when previous test level has been administered.

The ‘At a Glance Guide’ for use with paper tests includes the script for the Mental Maths section. This can be used to accommodate children with special educational needs.
