National assessments for primary pupils will be reformed following feedback from teachers, Education Secretary John Swinney has said.
Scottish National Standardised Assessments
John Swinney has said he has a “relentless focus” on improving the education system in Scotland, despite concerns being raised over standardised assessments.
An international expert who advises the Scottish Government on education took the controversial test for primary one pupils, and he told MSPs: “I didn’t find all the questions easy.”
Education chiefs in Dundee are being urged to consider withdrawing from a scheme of standardised tests being imposed on P1 pupils.
