CAT Tests, Assessment for Learning Tracking
your daughters progress
  • Mrs. McCormick-Clarke
  • Assistant Headteacher

9
  • In primary school, your daughters class teacher
    assessed her standard in English, Mathematics
    Science in her annual report using National
    Curriculum sublevels
  • In year 6, your daughter took Key Stage Two SAT
    tests in English Mathematics and her results
    were reported using National Curriculum sublevels
  • In years 7 8, your daughters progress in all
    subjects will continue to be assessed and
    monitored , using National Curriculum descriptors

10
Cognitive Ability Tests
  • Your daughter will be taking online CAT tests at
    school before the end of term 1 in October.
  • The CAT tests are Cognitive Ability tests,
    designed by a company called GL assessment.
  • Other secondary schools in the Medway towns and
    Kent use these CAT tests designed by this company
  • The tests will assess your daughters current
    skills and abilities in four areas Verbal,
    Quantitative, Non verbal and Spatial

11
How do we use the results of these CAT tests?
  • The results of the tests predict what minimum
    National Curriculum levels your daughter should
    achieve in her Key Stage Three studies, by the
    end of year 9.
  • The school uses the results of these CAT tests to
    help us set personalised targets for your
    daughter at the end of year 7, the end of year 8
    the end of year 9. This helps us to track your
    daughters progress

12
Assessment for Learning Reporting
  • In each subject, your daughters teacher will
    assess her standard at the end of every two terms
    using National Curriculum Sublevels
  • Just as in primary school, a sublevel a would
    mean that your daughter has a secure
    understanding of the concepts skills required
    at that particular National Curriculum Level.
  • A sublevel c would mean that she is only just
    starting to develop an understanding of some of
    the concepts skills required at that Level.
  • A sublevel b would represent an intermediate
    standard somewhere in between an a and a c

13
  • At the end of every second term, your daughters
  • subject teachers will assess her standard with
    respect
  • to the National Curriculum Sublevel Descriptors,
    using
  • tests, class work and homework tasks.
  • Using your daughters termly assessment and her
  • CAT predictions together, we will be able to
    identify
  • whether your daughter is on target to achieve
    her
  • targets.
  • Where your daughter is underachieving in one or
  • more subjects, we will share this information
    with both you and your daughter and offer
    suitable support
  • strategies to help her improve her standard and
  • achieve her full potential.
