Cambridge Primary provides a unique analysis tool for Cambridge Primary Progression Tests to track learners’ progress. Using test results, teachers can produce detailed reports to highlight the strengths and weaknesses of students and make targeted improvements to teaching and learning. Learners’ results can be compared against their class, school or other schools around the world, and on a year-by-year basis.
Cambridge Primary Checkpoint tests skills, knowledge and understanding at the end of the primary programme in English as a first or second language, maths, science and Cambridge Global Perspectives.
The tests are marked in Cambridge to provide an international benchmark of learner performance. Learners receive a statement of achievement and a diagnostic feedback report. Feedback reports show how a learner has performed in relation to the curriculum, their learning group, the whole school, and against all learners who have taken tests in that series around the world.
The tests help teachers to monitor group and individual performance, and manage learning programmes. Cambridge Primary Checkpoint Global Perspectives is assessed by teachers and externally moderated by Cambridge International.
