GL Assessment and Renaissance

GL’s assessments and Renaissance’s Star Assessments offer the ideal starting point to help schools and school groups understand their students’ strengths, pinpoint areas of need and put targeted measures in place. Renaissance’s teaching and learning programmes then provide teachers with effective next steps, helping students build the skills they need for success. Together, our assessments, tools and analytics are used by schools and school groups to drive better student outcomes.

In the future, we will provide new tools and insights that enhance students’ learning, development and performance. Everything we do will be designed to help teachers and leaders use data to make a meaningful difference in the classroom, and inform, align and evidence change across schools and groups of schools.

How GL Assessment can help you

In the future, we will continue to provide new tools and insights that enhance students’ learning, development and performance.

Unlock hidden potential

The Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT4) reveals hidden potential by assessing the main types of reasoning known to make a difference to learning and achievement. It provides a reliable baseline as well as indicators for national tests and examinations, including retrospective KS2 SATs, GCSEs and A-levels.

Uncover reading ability and need

The New Group Reading Test (NGRT) is a fully adaptive, standardised, termly reading assessment that reliably measures students’ reading skills, helping you to get to the root of any difficulties precisely and quickly.

Measure progress and identify gaps in learning

The Progress Test Series assesses knowledge, understanding and application in English, maths and science. The tests can be used at the middle or end of the year, and then year-on-year as a longitudinal measure.

Support student wellbeing

The Pupil Attitudes to Self and School Survey (PASS) is a tool that supports students’ well-being in learning and offers practical next steps.

Identify barriers to learning

GL Assessment’s portfolio of SEND screeners identifies strengths and challenges that may relate to a profile of special educational needs over a range of areas – language and communication, literacy, numeracy, cognition, SEMH and wellbeing.
