Building upon decades of international assessment experience, Progressive Achievement for International Schools (PAIS) is designed to provide educators with immediate and relevant feedback to support evidence-based teaching and improve student learning outcomes.
Designed for an international school context
PAIS has been created for international schools and schools with an international focus. Test content is culturally diverse and not aligned to a particular curriculum.

ACER is globally renowned for its work in assessment, educational research and products and services that improve learning across the lifespan. Since it was established in 1930, it has also built a strong reputation as a provider of reliable support and expertise to education policymakers and professional practitioners.
