Scottish National Standardised Assessments: P1 survey responses

An independent review of Primary 1 school assessment was carried out by David Reedy.

These responses informed recommendations on the following areas:

  • the suitability of SNSA for use in P1
  • the relationship of P1 SNSA to the benchmarks for early level
  • the effect of taking an online assessment on P1 children
  • the usefulness of the diagnostic information and how it supports teachers’ professional judgements
  • the usefulness of P1 SNSA for school improvement purposes
