Assessments

We use the Cambridge Primary testing structure to assess learner performance and report progress to learners and parents. Cambridge Primary assessment uses internationally benchmarked tests, giving parents extra trust in the feedback they receive. Cambridge Primary Progression Tests provide valid internal assessment of knowledge, skills and understanding in English, mathematics and science. The tests:

There are two assessment options:

  • Cambridge Primary Progression Tests (marked in school)
  • Cambridge Primary Checkpoint (marked by Cambridge examiners)

Cambridge Primary Progression Tests

    • Enable learning to be assessed each year
    • Provide detailed information about the performance of each learner for stages 3, 4, 5 and 6
    • Enable teachers to give structured feedback to learners and parents
    • Enable teachers to compare strengths and weaknesses of individuals and groups
    • Tests are marked by teachers at school
    • Come with clear guidance, standards and mark schemes

We provide a reporting tool for Cambridge Primary Progression Tests. We upload learners’ test results and then analyze the results and create the print reports. We can also compare a learner’s results against their class, school or other schools around the world and on a year-by-year basis.
