Cambridge Checkpoint Examinations

Cambridge Checkpoint Examinations

Many schools use our Cambridge Checkpoint tests to assess learners at the end of the lower secondary programme .

The tests are marked by Cambridge International for English as a first or second language, mathematics and science. Cambridge Lower Secondary Checkpoint Global Perspectives learners produce a research report that is assessed by teachers and externally moderated by Cambridge International.

Feedback reports

Schools use the feedback from Cambridge Lower Secondary Checkpoint to make strategic decisions, drawing upon a pool of information and specialist reporting tools that we have built into the tests. You can use the reports to:

  • tailor individual learning programmes
  • monitor group and individual performance
  • compare the performance of all learners taking tests in that session
  • manage learning programmes within schools and as learners move between schools.

The test feedback measures a learner’s performance in relation to:

  • the Curriculum framework
  • their teaching group
  • a whole school cohort
  • previous years’ learners.

Learner report

The learner report for each individual learner gives a:

  • Cambridge Checkpoint score achieved at subject level
  • mark achieved at strand and sub-strand/skill level
  • Statement of Achievement that shows the subjects and scores achieved.
