Measure progress in Modern Languages

ActiveLearn Progress & Assess (formerly Pearson Progression Services) for modern languages, is a reliable, easy-to-use system with progress assessments and markbooks, to measure students’ progress, from KS3 to GCSE.  It can work alongside your own system to give you confidence in your data, help you plan appropriate interventions, and save your teachers’ time planning and reporting.

ActiveLearn Progress & Assess is included in a full ActiveLearn subscription for French, German or Spanish KS3 and KS4, or as a separate subscription. 


The ActiveLearn: Progress & Assess for MFL includes:

  • 12-Step Progression Scale and mapping to 9-1 indicative GCSE grades
  • Progression Map
  • Baseline assessments 
  • End-of-topic, end-of-term and end-of-year assessments
  • Mark schemes for all assessments
  • Markbooks that provide analysis of students’ results.

The MFL Progression Scale and Map covers both GCSE and International GCSE.

Our French, Spanish and German Progression Maps and Scales are reliable, easy-to-use tools to measure students’ progress over Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. Each comprises of 12 steps ranging from low (1) to high (12) challenge. An average student is expected to reach the 4th step by the end of Year 7 and then make one step of progression in each of Years 8-11. The first four steps are closer together to reflect students’ more rapid progress when they start learning a language. Steps are mapped to indicative (9-1) grades to help you explain progress in more tangible terms to students, parents and senior management.
