Scottish National Standardised Assessments (SNSA) 

Children in P1, P4 and P7  will complete online standardised assessments in literacy and numeracy as part of everyday learning and teaching.

The assessments are as inclusive as possible to accommodate the needs of children and young people who require additional support.

There is no pass or fail and children and young people do not have to revise or prepare for these assessments.

The main purpose of the assessments is to provide information for teachers on how well children are doing in literacy and numeracy and to help guide learning and teaching. The assessments are also designed to produce national-level information about children and young people’s progress for Scottish Government. The national information covers the whole of Scotland.

The Process
Members of the leadership team and class teachers will support classes to access the online assessments. P1 pupils will sit two SNSA assessments: one in literacy and one in numeracy.  P4 and P7 pupils will take 3 SNSA assessments: one in reading, one in writing and one in numeracy.  Each assessment will last approximately 45 minutes.  Your child will take the assessments in their class as part of their everyday school work.

Further information about the Scottish National Standardised Assessments is available online through the SNSA website or you can contact the school.
