About PT Form B

What is PT Form B?

We have introduced a new form of Progress Tests in English, maths and science. The addition of our new Form B offers you the option of testing twice a year, providing you with a second data point to measure student progress and understanding of curriculum.

Form B is available in digital format for both primary and secondary levels.

It is also currently available in paper format for primary levels. Paper for secondary levels will follow in the 2022/23 academic year.

Please see the subject specific areas for full information, such as which form to choose and when to test if you want to test twice in the year: 




Please note, we are currently finalising combination reports between CAT4 and PT for Form B.  These will be available by June 2022. If you need to talk to us further about combination reporting in the meantime, please contact our support team, or speak to your account manager.

You do not need to change anything if you would like to continue testing once a year using the original (Form A) Progress Tests.
