Valid and reliable printed tests covering years 3, 4, 5 and 6 with a web-based marking and reports system showing individual and class attainment and progress towards national standards.
These tests are:
- proven high quality assessment for the new national curriculum;
- ideal for identifying strengths and weaknesses of individual pupils and classes to support effective teaching and learning;
- designed to demonstrate progression from key stage 1 to the end of key stage 2.
The tests are specifically designed to be used at the end of the year 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.
NEW! Year 6 Progress Tests
To help teachers monitor the progress of their year 6 pupils, we have developed two complete suites of tests: the first to be taken mid-way through the school year (January/February) and the second one in April.
Developed by assessment experts, Year 6 progress tests are designed to give teachers reliable and standardised information to:
- identify aspects of the curriculum that require whole class revision
- support effective booster classes;
- review progress towards the end of key stage 2 using raw and scaled scores in line with the new national standards;
- facilitate differentiated teaching and personalised learning;
- enable targeted teaching and less general test practice.
Using effective assessment resources and strategies provides more time for rich teaching and learning in year 6.
“It’s fantastic to have something which is easy to administer and gives us useful information about pupil progress in the new curriculum.”

Supporting teachers to measure progression through key stage 2
Diagnostic pupil, class and cohort reports are available to help teachers make valid and reliable assessment judgements based on the results from our fully standardised test papers.
Our reports can help you understand:
- how your school compares with others,
- pupils’ strengths and weaknesses,
- where to target interventions,
- routes for progression,
- and whether pupils are on track.
Through research and analysis of data, Testbase Optional Tests will enable schools to make confident judgements about their pupils’ progress from year 3 to their end of key stage 2 results, and to set appropriate targets accordingly.
