Attainment Testing for National Agenda Targets in Sharjah – GL Progress Tests

As part of the framework for the evaluation of school performance in the UAE, 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
