Abstract

The report concerns recommendations to improve the implementation of the Scottish National Standardised Assessments (SNSA). These include:
1. Stronger guidance to inform how teachers interact with, and support, children during the SNSA
2. Guidance on how the SNSA can be delivered in a way that is compatible with a play-based classroom environment
Implementation guidance and training which is available online, outside of the SNSA 3. system, so that all educators can access it at a time that is convenient
4. A publicly available rationale setting out the possible uses and purposes of the SNSA within the broader assessment framework of Scottish schools ­– to ensure the assessments are not perceived as “high stakes”
