Standardised Assessments

Standardised Tests are normally conducted in February in every East Renfrewshire school. The Raw Scores for each child are standardised to an average score of 100, taking the child’s age into consideration. The scores range from 70-130. Standardised Scores are especially helpful when monitoring progress for individual pupils, and teachers and the senior management team carefully analyse the results to ensure that appropriate progress is being made for every child. A score of 90-109 is age appropriate and if your child is in P3, P5 or P7 and has sat a Standardised Test, their score is mentioned in the end of year report. What is measured in these tests? Standardised Reading consists of the following 9 components: Main idea, literal, supporting detail, vocabulary/knowledge about language, inferential, sequencing, writers’ craft, evaluative and genre. Standardised Maths consists of the following 10 components: Mental Maths, add/subtract, divide/multiply, measurement/time, estimation/rounding/number/money, fractions/percentages/ratio, patterns/expressions/equations/relationships, shape/position/movement, information handling and problem solving. How does the school use these scores? We use Standardised Tests along with a wide range of other assessments and the teacher’s own expertise to ensure that your child is making appropriate progress in their learning. The Senior Management Team and class teachers interpret the data to identify areas for improvement for individual pupils, groups of children or whole classes. This may involve providing a special programme of study, focused homework, identifying a particular resource or advice from other agencies and our own in-house attainment team. At all times we are happy to discuss your child’s learning and progress.
