Progressive Achievement Test results available through the Parent Portal 

If your daughter is in Year 9 or 10, you are able to access her Progressive Achievement Tests (PATs) result through the school’s Parent Portal.

PATs assess students’ Mathematics, Listening Comprehension, Punctuation and Grammar, Reading Comprehension, and Reading Vocabulary. They are a series of standardised tests developed specifically for use in New Zealand schools.

To access your daughter’s PATs results, go to the Parent Portal ( It is also available on our website – just scroll down to the bottom of the homepage and you’ll find the link under “Quick Links”.

Once you have signed into the Portal, click on “Results” in the drop-down menu and then “All Results”. You’ll see something that looks like this image below. The actual result appears as a stanine score – a score from 1-9 derived from a national norm reference sample. A stanine of 9 indicates a very high level of general ability relative to the whole norm reference group, and a stanine of 1 indicates a very low relative achievement.
