The Scottish Government has developed a factsheet for parents on the revisions to the National 5 qualifications for academic year 2017/18. This information explains why the unit assessments are being removed and what the changes mean for your child.
As part of the on-going implementation of the National Improvement Framework (NIF), the Scottish National Standardised Assessments (SNSAs) have now been launched. The SNSAs are a diagnostic tool to support improvement in children’s learning and to inform teachers’ professional judgment on pupil progress.
Information about SNSA is available on a new Standardised Assessments website, there’s also a leaflet for parents and carers. Visit the Scottish Government website for further information about the National Improvement Framework.
