Why choose us?

For over 35 years, the GL Education Group has provided rigorous and high-quality assessments for children’s education, mental health and wellbeing.

Our portfolio of published tests includes widely-used assessments such as the Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT), Progress Test in Maths, and New Group Reading Test. In fact, our resources and services are now used in British, bilingual and international schools in over 100 countries worldwide.

To ensure our assessments incorporate the very latest thinking and research, we have worked together with numerous distinguished organisations in the UK and abroad, including King’s College London, the University of Cambridge, the University of Michigan and the Australian Council for Educational Research.

We are also partnered with numerous professional organisations internationally, such as FOBISSEA, ECIS, BSME and COBIS. In the UK, our many partnerships include the NAHT, ASCL and the IAA.

Assessment has changed dramatically over the last decade and the GL Education Group has been at the forefront of this change. By taking a joined-up approach, our assessments link together to cover the cornerstones of ability, attainment and attitudes, enabling you to build a whole pupil view and improve teaching and learning.

Our pioneering approach is also reflected in the popularity of our online assessments. In fact, we have already delivered over 6 million online tests to date and over 50% of our international customers favour our digital assessments that deliver immediate results and can be used on demand throughout the year.
