PiRA Key Stage 3

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


Progress in Reading Assessment (PiRA) KS3 enables schools to accurately measure and predict pupil progress in reading 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


Discounts available for large cohorts. Contact your local consultant for details. 

PiRA Key Stage 3 is available to pre-order and will be published as follows:

  • Autumn tests - available summer 2018
  • Spring tests - available autumn 2018
  • Summer tests and full manual - available spring 2019

MARK (My Assessment and Reporting Kit) 

PiRA KS3 will be supported by MARK from spring 2019, which will enable you to enter your pupils' test scores and automatically generate reports by pupil, group or class. In the meantime, interim manuals will be provided to enable you to easily mark tests and analyse performance using standardised scores.

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