What is PIPS?

PIPS (Performance Indicators in Primary Schools) is a standardised assessment system that is designed to monitor pupils’ educational progress throughout the Primary phase. Established since 1991, PIPS is one of the longest running projects to be offered by the Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring at Durham University.

What does PIPS do?

PIPS provides an annual assessment of attainment in the core curriculum areas of reading and mathematics. In addition there is an assessment of developed abilities, which may be regarded as a measure of each child’s academic potential. Comparison of academic attainment with academic potential, and also with previous academic performance, allows teachers to build a powerful profile of individual progress for every child throughout the Primary phase.
