Tests/Assessments

Tests/assessments contain all the content which will enable you to assess your students' education, mental health and well-being.

All our assessments contain scientifically rigorous content backed by our 30 years of experience in the education industry.

A comprehensive list of all our tests can be found on our websites at GL Assessment (UK and ROI) and GL Education (International). 

On our websites, you can also find detailed information about each individual test we offer.

Tests that are available to be taken on Testwise include the following:

  • Baseline - This is a measure of literacy, language skills and mathematical abilities for Reception-aged students.
  • PT Series (Progress Test Series) - This is a measure of English language, mathematical and scientific abilities of students of all ages.
  • CAT4 (Cognitive Abilities Test 4 Edition) - This helps you measure the developed abilities and academic potential of the student. Results from CAT4 can help in identifying the need for intervention, monitoring progress and setting targets for the future.
  • PASS (Pupil Attitudes to Self and School) - This is a measure of student attitudes towards themselves as learners and their attitudes towards school.

The specific tests/assessments available to you on Testwise will depend upon the Services purchased by your school. Services contain one or more tests/assessments bundled together for ease of purchase. You can view your purchased Services and the expiry date for each Service on Testwise.

When a sitting has been created and the assessment has started, the student will be able to log into the system to complete their tests.
