International Standardized Examinations

The Cognitive Abilities Test: Fourth Edition (CAT4) is a suit of diagnostic assessment of developed ability and likely academic potential.
CAT 4 provides a unique profile of students’ strengths and weaknesses four batteries . Verbal, Non –verbal, Quantitative and Spatial Reasoning . Because three of these four batteries are not reliant on knowledge of the English Language , the test is ideal for assessing EAL students, the test is ideal for assessing EAL students.CAT4 for Grade 3,4,6,8

Verbal Reasoning Battery – thinking with words

Quantitative (or Numerical) Reasoning Battery – thinking with numbers

Non-verbal Reasoning Battery – thinking with shapes

Spatial Ability Battery – thinking with shape and space


The students have shown an excellent result in Quantitative part and also in verbal battery. Most of the students show their performance above the national level in some areas. Some students shows very high achievement level in both Verbal and Spatial batteries. Such students we are considered as Gifted Ones. That is if they score SAS as above 126 in both verbal and spatial, they are gifted students.


As per the graph, the weakness of our students lies in the field of non verbal and spatial. The students show weakness in this field due to their lack of increasingly sophisticated understanding of size, shape, relative position and movement of two dimensional figures in the plane.. They are likely to be high achievers in subjects that require good visual-spatial skills such as math, physics and technology. Owing to a relative weakness in verbal skills, attainment may be uneven and they may need support in subjects where the emphasis is on the written word. The students those who score less than 70 as SAS in both verbal spatial they are SEN.


The Progress Test Series
Track student attainment and progress in English, Mathematics and Science

The fully standardized Progress Test Series ( PT series )supports formative assessment in the school by providing reliable benchmarking and year on year progress tracking :

Progress Test in English (PTE) : Assess students’ technical English skills (Spelling, grammar and punctuation) and reading comprehension.

Progress Test in Maths (PTM): Monitor students’ mathematical skills and knowledge, in areas such as number, shape , data handling and algebra, as well as their mathematical reasoning and problem – Solving skills.

Progress Test in Science (PTS) : Measure two dimensions of science learning: science content knowledge and understanding and working scientifically (applying science skills)

 IBT Arabic
The International Benchmark Tests are designed to give an international benchmark of your child’s performance vis-ŕ-vis the participating countries in the world and in the region.
TIMSS: Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study

The Trend in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) measures students’ knowledge in Mathematics and Science at two significant point in a student’s schooling, Grade 4 and Grade 8 . The tests are uniquely designed by the International Association for the Evaluation of Education Achievement (IEA) to measure different et equally important component of knowledge building . in TIMSS these are referred to as Content and Cognitive domains. The Content domains specify the domains or subject matter to be assessed within each discipline . These domains are thought to be in line with subject classification at the school level and hence vary between Grade 4 and 8 for both subjects. The Cognitive domains on the other hand describe the sets of behaviors expected of students as they engage with the content and they vary across grade level and subjects

PIRLS: Progress in International Reading Literacy Study
The IEA's Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS) is an international study of reading (comprehension) achievement in fourth graders. It is conducted by the International Association (IEA)
PISA : Programme for International Student Assessment
The Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) is an international assessment that measures 15-year-old students' reading, mathematics, and science literacy every three years. In addition, each cycle explores a distinct “innovative domain” such as collaborative problem solving (PISA 2015) and global competence (PISA 2018). The results have informed education policy discussions at the national and global level.
