'For me, the greatest value in this material is not in identifying individual needs, but in auditing how your curriculum delivery is working – whether your students actually understand what is being taught... What the testing further clearly showed, though, is what was lacking in the science that had been delivered to these students, by me and those who came before me...

PATScience provides us with a test that’s easy to give, that’s easy to get marked, that’s easy to obtain various data for and that can show student progres­sion. It allows for monitoring of individual students as well as auditing courses. With all that in mind, it’s great to see that some­one has done the yucky part of the work for us, leaving us teachers to worry about providing the appropriate programs for our students and not messing around with datasheets.'
