We love speaking with teachers like you
We strive to make it as effortless and insightful to assess your pupils as possible. That’s why we spend lots of time talking to teachers like you about your experiences with our termly standardised tests, PiRA, PUMA and GAPS. We especially love hearing how you use the results to support your professional judgement and communicate performance with stakeholders.
Learn from a variety of schools facing a mixture of challenges
We regularly speak with schools from several different areas around the country, each with differing levels of performance, pupil funding and number of children on roll. It’s so interesting to hear how these varying schools each use PiRA, PUMA and GAPS to meet their wide range of needs.
So, what are PiRA, PUMA and GAPS?
PiRA, PUMA and GAPS are termly standardised assessments designed to reduce the number of hours that you spend marking and analysing reading, maths and GPS assessments. They’re available in paper and auto-marked online format, making it more straightforward than ever to benchmark performance against national averages in a way that suits you. What’s more, each test comes with free access to MARK, our online assessment tool that we’ve created to make life easier with reports that are easy to view, compare and share.
