    A useful resource, it would be good if we could translate the overall percentage given at the end into a more qualitative result e.g. emerging, expected or exceeding progress made. We have used this with a Year 3 class for assessments.

      Hi there,

      Thanks for your comment! :)

      Our assessment tests are designed for identifying learning gaps and can be used as a diagnostic or summative assessment tool. They don't come with any kind of level descriptors, such as emerging, meeting and exceeding expectations.

      As there is no national grading system any more, individual schools and local authorities have produced their own ways of monitoring progress. This has resulted in a degree of variation that prevents us from providing prescribed markers. You may find this website helpful

      I hope that this helps. Please let me know if there is anything else that I can help you with.

      Have a lovely evening!

    I think that this is a great way to see where the children are and great for finding the gaps. Are there 'thresholds' so that we can try and see where the children are with regards to the new assessment?

      Hi there,

      Due to the way that the curriculum is now assessed, we cannot offer thresholds based on the marks gained by pupils in this test. We are however working on some assessment spreadsheets that will break down pupils' progress as well as the whole class in relation to the objectives. Please keep an eye out on the site for them.

      Have a lovely day!
