GL Assessment will be showcasing its range of digital assessments at Bett 2017 (stand B149), all designed to provide schools with an easy and effective way of revealing students’ potential, tracking their progress and identifying any barriers to learning they might have. Key highlights include GL Assessment’s SEN Assessment Toolkit (SENAT) and its international division, GL Education, which have both been shortlisted in the Bett Awards 2017.
For primary schools looking for clarity on life after levels, secondary schools preparing for Progress 8, and SENCOs looking for accurate ways of identifying children with special educational needs, GL Assessment’s digital assessments can provide the evidence that schools need, all at the touch of a button. Its digital assessments are also used by schools and ministries in over 100 countries worldwide.
Sarah Haythornthwaite, the Sales and Marketing Director of GL Assessment, said: “At Bett 2017, our aim is to help teachers clarify what good assessment looks like and how digital assessment in particular can support them. Good assessment data provides enough information for a teacher to make a decision about a student and it helps them to assess students over time and in relation to each other. Our digital assessments provide teachers with greater flexibility, automatic scoring and instant diagnostic reports, and students often find the experience more motivating, too.”
Key highlights on the GL Assessment stand include:

The importance of developing children's skills of self-regulation, and shares her strategies for how to do this
The importance of maintaining a focus on literacy within the curriculum has never been far away from the government’s agenda and anyone working within education would agree that developing strong literacy skills are key to a student’s success, particularly as external examinations consist of written papers.
GL Assessment has today published a termly, standardised spelling test which is designed to help teachers measure their pupils’ spelling skills against a national benchmark. The first digital, adaptive spelling test of its kind, the New Group Spelling Test is designed for pupils aged 6 – 14 years and is suitable for use on a PC or tablet.
