PUMA Key Stage 3

Published by RS Assessment from Hodder Education (part of the Hodder Education Group)


Progress in Understanding Mathematics Assessment (PUMA) KS3 enables schools to accurately measure and predict pupil progress in maths and compare their performance against national averages.


These standardised assessments enable you to:

  • monitor progress as pupils develop the knowledge and skills they need for GCSE
  • see how groups of pupils are performing against other pupils nationally
  • gain reliable diagnostic and predictive information


PUMA Key Stage 3 is now available to order and will be published as follows:

  • Autumn tests - available now 
  • Spring tests - autumn 2017
  • Summer tests and full manual - spring 2018

Autumn tests evaluation pack

This FREE pack includes one copy of each of the autumn tests to support you in evaluating the test and reporting content. Order now for delivery on publication in June.

MARK (My Assessment and Reporting Kit) 

PUMA KS3 will be supported by MARK, which will enable you to enter your pupils' test scores and automatically generate reports by pupil, group or class.

Find out more about MARK.

Please note:

Interim Answer and Marksheet Booklets for each term’s tests will be available online in advance of the publication of the full Manuals in spring 2018 – you will be sent details of where to access these as downloadable PDFs with your tests.

You will be able to use the online marksheets and onscreen gap analysis within MARK in the term that the test is to be used, but the full online reporting facility will only launch once all of the tests are available in spring 2018.

Please also note that the PUMA KS3 tests are NOT photocopiable.
