National Standardisation Project

Take part in our new assessment trials and receive £250 towards any new GL Assessment product.

To ensure our admissions assessments remain robust and accurate, we undergo a continuous cycle of test question development. A vital part of this process is trialling these questions with students. We would like to invite you and your Year 6 pupils to take part in an important study for the standardisation of reasoning and attainment tests scheduled to take place from March 2020 until 12 June 2020.

What's involved?

Pupils will take two separate tests one on reasoning and one joint paper in literacy and numeracy. Each test is paper based and lasts 40 - 50 minutes, plus administration time. All testing materials will be couriered to you and collected once testing is complete.

To thank you for helping us ensure our questions are as robust and fair as possible you can choose between:

  • £50 Amazon voucher
  • £50 John Lewis voucher
  • £250 towards any new* GL Assessment products.

We will also mark and analyse your cohort's test results and provide feedback on your students performance as part of a Standardised Age Score report, giving you additional information about your Year 6 students’ performance

To register your interest please fill in the form below, or if you have any questions do not hesitate to email

*£250 will be added to your account upon successful completion of the trial and is only redeemable against assessments that have not previously been purchased by the school.
