“We know that non-native speakers might learn more formal words and structures, but InCAS (now evolved into Cambridge Primary Insight) has a difficulty weighting for native and non-native language which is balanced evenly.”
We know that bilingual or multi-lingual children face a huge challenge when they enter school. Not only do they have to learn a new curriculum, but they must quickly understand new concepts and develop literacy skills - all in another language.
Our MidYIS, Yellis and Cambridge Primary Insight assessments are effectively designed to help you, as teachers, help your EAL students, so you can identify, understand and support their learning needs.
Discover how Cambridge Primary Insight can empower your students
- Identify strengths and areas for support

“We use the MidYIS data to pay attention to building skills, confidence and motivation, and it’s the starting point of our focus on literacy across the curriculum, in all subjects and in every classroom.”

Every student is different. When new students join your school or you meet your new class, how do you know what their individual needs are to differentiate teaching and learning? How do you know where to focus your resources and support?
It takes time to reveal students’ individual learning needs and potential through observation alone.
Our baseline assessments can provide this information instantly. Baseline assessments are used at the beginning of a year or stage and provide information on a students’ skills and abilities.
