Standardised Tests

What is a standardised test?

Standardised tests measure your child’s achievement in literacy and numeracy compared to other children throughout the country at the same class level or age level. Schools are required to administer these tests at the end of second, fourth and sixth class.

To help you understand these tests there are leaflets for parents available at these links.
