Scottish National Standardised Assessments, numbers taking one or both parts: FOI release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

Information requested


How many P1 children have taken (a) one of or (b) both parts of the Scottish National Standardised Assessment since (and including) 20 September 2018, broken down by date and local authority.




I enclose information relating to your request in the attached pdf. This document shows the monthly breakdown of P1 literacy and numeracy assessments taken in each local authority from September 2018 – 7 April 2019. This shows that, since September 2018, there have been 5,658 completed literacy assessments and 5,870 completed numeracy assessments. However, we are unable to provide you with information on how many individual P1 children have completed both assessments.
