All Password English language tests, including Password Pupil tests, are designed and academically managed by CRELLA (the Centre for Research in English Language Learning and Assessment), a research group involved in the development and validation of many of the world’s most renowned English language assessments including IELTS and the Cambridge suite.
The tests are formally aligned to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), the international standard for describing language ability.
Password Pupil Maths tests were developed following demand from institutions already using our English tests. In 2017, we undertook an extensive consultation with our partner universities, colleges and schools and worked with senior maths teachers from a consortium of leading UK independent schools to ensure the tests would enjoy the same academic validity and usability as our English tests.
All Password tests are proven to have extremely high levels of accuracy since their launch in 2008.
