That’s why we regularly carry out extensive research, with thousands of pupils, to ensure that PUMA scores continue to provide helpful information to predict SATs results.

Please be advised that orders of the PUMA tests are restricted to schools/institutions only. Please supply an institutional address when you place your order as we are unable to fulfil orders with a private address. Please also note that the PUMA tests are NOT photocopiable.
We can now make comparisons with the national picture and identify progress.
Staff feel more secure in their judgements with the data to inform them.
The standardised scores are very similar to the scaled score, and they correlate well with SATs outcomes. Generally, if they score 100 or higher in the spring they tend to achieve a scaled score of 100 or above in their SATs.
Mrs Dixon described the tests as attractive and child-friendly, but crucially, also well-matched to the layout of SATs papers. The school has used other assessment materials which lack the child-friendly layout of PiRA and PUMA, and pupils are turned off from the start. The PiRA tests offer a good range of texts and questions.
