RS Assessment From Hodder EducationBringing together 40 years of assessment expertise

RS Assessment from Hodder Education is the assessment provider with a reassuring history. We bring together expertise and resources from Rising Stars (leading provder of assessments for over 11,000 primary schools) and Hodder Education (provider of rigorous assessment for over 40 years). We know that all schools are different, so we've worked with the very best assessment experts and teachers across the country to create reliable assessments to suit a range of needs, including:

Formative assessment


Cost-effective light-touch tools to check gaps in learning

Standardised tests

Print and interactive standardised tests to measure progress against national averages 

Sats-style tests

SATs-style tests to prepare children for national test success 

SEN tools

Evidence-based SEN tools to identify and address the needs of all children


Our assessments are always evaluated independently, written by expert authors and designed to reduce teacher workload as far as possible.

We know that an assessment is only as valuable as the outcomes and insights it provides. That's why we're continually improving the free reports we offer on MARK (My Assessment and Reporting Kit) to help teachers make reliable judgements about learning and adapt future teaching. We've already helped teachers to analyse over 2 million tests on MARK, and look forward to helping teachers to analyse many more!
