We have found that the Second Edition GPS Progress Tests are particularly well-matched to the SATs questions seen in the 2018 Key Stage 2 SATs, and that they reflect the full range of types of questions currently being used.
By using the Progress Tests, staff have easily been able to identify gaps, misconceptions and common areas for development, and adapt their teaching to ensure that these gaps are filled.
We use the tests in all four subjects to show where the specific gaps are in the class’s knowledge to help us plan the next steps for their learning.
The tests gave us a good idea of where the children were in their learning and what prior knowledge they had. They were very useful to inform our planning! The tests were simple to conduct and were challenging enough to differentiate the high achieving children from the low achieving children.
We commissioned an independent research organisation specialising in education, to carry out an evaluation study on the impact our Progress Tests.
