Within East Dunbartonshire Council, schools use a range of assessment information to track children’s progress including:

  • Standardised assessment
  • Periodic assessment
  • End of unit assessments.

The information gathered through standardised assessments is used as part of a suite of information to inform learning and teaching. Standardised assessments can provide a detailed breakdown of a child’s ability in literacy and numeracy. Together with assessments from day-to-day learning and other assessment tasks or activities, standardised assessments can provide a detailed picture of children’s progress.

A guide for parents and carers gives further information on this.
