Parliamentary debates and questions

S5W-18731: Tavish Scott (Shetland Islands)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 11 September 2018

To ask the Scottish Government how many of the changes set out from paragraph 64 to paragraph 77 of the report, Scottish National Standardised Assessments User Review Year 1 – Session 2017/18, were under consideration prior to the receipt of teacher feedback.



Answered by: John Swinney 19 September 2018

The SNSA were developed in discussion with teachers and the Scottish Government has sought feedback from users as an integral part of the continuous improvement process. A number of system improvements, for example replenishment of a third of the questions, were already in train prior to more recent feedback such as the EIS member survey.
