Progress & Assess: Measure, report and plan next steps
Our reliable progress assessments and tools help you to measure progress, formulate 9-1 grade predictions and identify intervention requirements for your students for all EBacc subjects, consistently from 11–16 (and KS5 for maths).
Our progress assessments and markbooks can support your existing methods of measuring progress or provide a complete solution. Take a look at the video below to find out more, try our free assessments or get in touch with us to request a demonstration.
Using our experience in assessment, we’ve created formative assessments (or tests) to be used regularly at key points throughout key stage 3 and 4 to help you understand what your students already know and what they need to do to make progress. These include baseline assessments at the beginning of the key stage, end-of-topic or unit assessments, end-of-term and end-of-year. The number and timing of the assessment varies according to the subject.
Inputting assessment results into the accompanying markbooks provides you with a view of students’ strengths and weaknesses at a student and class level. This enables you to identify where a student or whole class needs extra help, so you can focus on what they need to do to make progress. Our markbooks also provide a step grading which is mapped to an indicative grade to help you explain progress in these terms to students and parents.

Our progression maps:
We’ve created progression maps for each EBacc subject course. The maps break down the skills and knowledge required mapped on to a 12-step progression scale to help you to measure student’s progress throughout 11-16. The 12 steps provide a measure of progress throughout KS3 and KS4 and are mapped to 9-1 indicative grades for reporting in those terms. Read more about our progression scale and maps here.
