Standardised Testing

Your child will be assessed during the year using Standardised Tests.

What is a standardised test?

Standardised tests measure your child’s achievement in literacy and numeracy compared to other children throughout the country at the same class level or age level. Schools are required to administer these tests at the end of second, fourth and sixth class. In our school we test all children from senior infants to sixth.

Information sheets for parents

Sharing assessment information with parents is an important part of teachers’ assessment practice. To help schools in this process, the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA) has developed information sheets for parents which explain the meaning of standardised test scores.
