Auto-marked, online, interactive assessments



 

Please note that, based on feedback from teachers like you, we’ve completely updated the paper versions of PiRA and PUMA so that they reflect today’s teaching practice. To allow for comparisons against current national averages, we’ve also fully re-standardised the tests on thousands of pupils in 2019-20. These updated editions are called New PiRA and New PUMA. These tests are available to pre-order now.

  • Autumn credits will appear in your account as of Summer 2020, ready for testing Autumn 2020
  • Spring credits will appear in your account as of Autumn 2020, ready for testing Spring 2021
  • Summer credits will appear in your account as of Spring 2021, ready for testing Summer 2021

GAPS interactive will remain in its current form, and more information about New PiRA interactive and New PUMA interactive will be posted on this page soon, so please keep an eye out!
