Independent research on the use and impact of Rising Stars Progress Tests

The purpose of the research was to establish how schools were using the tests and the understand the impact that the tests had on teaching and learning.

  • The tests helped teachers to target their teaching more effectively.
  • The tests ensured a consistent approach to assessing and measuring progress without levels.
