Assessing Children’s Progress – The Scottish Government have provided important information to families in this new document:

http://www.gov.scot/Resource/0051/00510590.pdf

It shares how we currently assess children’s progress and how standardised assessments play a part in this. Teachers are constantly assessing how well your child is doing in their learning – and in many, many ways – including through marking every day, creating assessments which take a closer look at key learning, observing, and talking to your child. A change from August 2017, is that the Sottish Government is introducing new national standardised assessments covering some aspects of reading, writing and working with numbers. Every child in P1, P4, P7 and S3 will take these assessments online.
