Attainment Testing for National Agenda Parameter in Dubai – GL Progress Tests

As part of the National Agenda Parameter, schools are required to complete one benchmark assessment with their students in mathematics, science and English. To support schools to meet these requirements, our Progress Tests in maths, English and science are available for schools following UK, IB, Pakistani, Canadian and Philippine curriculum for attainment testing.

By combining your existing CAT4 data with the detailed reports produced by the Progress tests, you can effectively validate teacher judgement on both your students’ ability and attainment across the core subjects.

See how the British School of Jakarta use their combination reports to identify academic needs and strategies for intervention

In line with established practice and guidance from regulators, please be advised that access to the Progress Tests will only be available for the purposes of international benchmark testing. Your licences to administer Progress Tests will therefore only be available until and including 27th June 2019.  Please ensure you only purchase the administrations you need for the benchmark testing, as we will be unable to credit any remaining administrations once the licences have expired.

This page is intended to support you to successfully complete testing with your students and ensure that the results we are submitting to regulators on your behalf are correct and up to date.

Please take a look at the information below, and do not hesitate to get in touch with us if there is anything further you need
