Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 20 September 2018

To ask the Scottish Government how much it cost (a) it and (b) each of its relevant agencies to operate the P1 assessment tests in the 2017-18 academic year, and what the projected cost is for 2018-19.

Answered by: John Swinney 28 September 2018

The cost of the P1 assessments for the 2017-18 academic year was around £447,000. This represents the amount paid by the Scottish Government to the SNSA supplier. No other agency contributes to these costs. For 2018-19, the projected cost is expected to be similar.
