Progress in Understanding Mathematics Assessment

Progress in Mathematics Assessment (PUMA) is a suite of standardised termly tests that enable schools to accurately measure and predict progress in reading and compare performance to national averages.

Place an order
The standardised termly assessments, available for Years 7 to 9, enable schools to:
  • monitor progress as pupils develop the knowledge and skills needed for GCSE

  • see how groups of pupils are performing against other pupils nationally

  • gain reliable diagnostic and predictive information.
