CATS 4
 These tests focus on each individual student’s style of learning.
 Taking these tests on entry to the school allows us to assess the student’s
learning and to place them appropriately in sets for some subjects.
 They allow us to identify ‘gifted’ students – We now able to identify those with
high levels of spatial as well as verbal and numerical ability.
 CATs tests are part of a national framework which correlates with curriculum Key
Stages.
 3 out of the 4 parts of CATs4 are not dependent on language so students with
any level of English can be assessed.
 CATs are for students with a reading age from age 7 years 6 months to 17 years 11
months and the same test format is used throughout.
 The results support all aspects of teaching and learning and are used as a
reference point for teachers when planning and setting targets.
