During your child’s time in primary school he or she will complete standardised Numeracy and Literacy tests towards the end of every school year. In our school, we administer the Micra-T standardised test for English reading and the Sigma-T standardised test for Maths for 1st to 6th class. The results of these are presented to you in your child’s end-of-year report. Adapted from information on the website for the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment, here we explain what standardised tests are and how they can help your child’s learning.
Further information about the standardised testing can be found here at the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment’s website. However, if you have any questions, we would be delighted to answer these.
