What is ELMs?

ELMs online assessments measure learning in mathematics and in key English competencies: reading, vocabulary and writing. ELMs online assessments match the new National Curriculum, and provide accurate and reliable information about where each pupil is in their learning.

The dynamic online reporting platform makes it easy to filter and sort for the data you need in order to inform practice in the classroom and when working with pupils. Progress is measured from one test to the next and comparing achievement year-on-year and between cohorts is easy. All pupils are capable of progress if they are engaged, motivated and provided with learning opportunities – get in contact to find out how ELMs can help!
