Reliable feedback

Each test is supported by MERiT, our reporting and insights tool, so you can confidently benchmark the performance of your pupils by comparison with the Testbase population. The tests are perfect for informing future planning because they identify pupils’ strengths and weaknesses enabling you to target interventions and routes for learning progression.

“A really good form of assessment and a way of tracking progress and gaps in knowledge for interventions.”

Building Pupils’ Confidence

We’ve designed our tests to reflect the style and format of the national curriculum tests and teachers tell us they appreciate their high quality and ease of use.

“Well-aligned to year group curricula, MERiT is extremely easy to use and questions prepare children for actual SATs”


Our tests are built to work alongside a wide range of approaches to assessment and reporting so there is no need for schools to change their scheme of work or strategy.

“Testbase is easy and quick to use, with excellent resources.”


MERiT takes your pupils’ marks and does the analysis for you. It generates class and individual reports enabling you to check your pupils are on track, produce reports for parents and feed data back into school management systems through the Excel download. MERiT also enables you to compare your school with others.

“The most helpful aspect of the tests is that they allow you to compare outcomes for cohorts or individual children across a range of criteria not only with outcomes within the school but also with the population average for all schools who have submitted results.”
