Student Progress Reporting
Reporting student progress to parents is an important part of the educational process. Providing information
about the strengths and challenges of learners helps our teachers and parents focus on ways to support
learning at school and at home.
GL Assessment is the leading provider of formative assessments to UK and British Schools Overseas.
GL assessments are developed in collaboration with a global community of experts from leading
universities and research teams, and have been used by education for over 35 years. We believe in a
‘whole pupil’ approach to assessment that allows students to track their own progress and identify
any barriers and learning difficulties they might have.
