Many schools use the Cambridge Lower Secondary testing structure to assess learner performance and report progress to learners and parents. Cambridge Lower Secondary assessment uses internationally benchmarked tests, giving parents extra trust in the feedback they receive.
There are two assessment options:
Cambridge Lower Secondary Progression Tests provide valid internal assessment of knowledge, skills and understanding in English as a first or second language, mathematics and science. The tests:
Schools can choose between paper-based and on-screen versions of the tests. The on-screen tests are available in English, mathematics and science for stages 7, 8 and 9 of the curriculum. Learn about on-screen tests.
We provide a reporting tool for Cambridge Lower Secondary Progression Tests. The tool is available on the Cambridge Lower Secondary support site. Teachers can upload learners’ test results and then analyse the results and create and print reports. Teachers can also compare a learner’s results against their class, school or other schools around the world and on a year-by-year basis.
Cambridge Lower Secondary Checkpoint is a diagnostic testing service that helps learners by giving comprehensive feedback on their strengths and weaknesses in each subject area.
We offer Cambridge Lower Secondary Checkpoint tests twice a year and they are usually taken at the end of Cambridge Lower Secondary. The tests are marked in Cambridge and each learner receives a statement of achievement and a diagnostic report. The Cambridge Global Perspectives assessment is marked by teachers and moderated in Cambridge.
