Teachers attack blanket testing plan for primary pupils

Jun 7, 2018 by

TEACHERS are being ordered to test all primary pupils in their class at the same time against guidelines, it has been claimed.

Standardised assessments were introduced by the Scottish Government to hep teachers assess progress of individual pupils.

However, the Educational Institute of Scotland (EIS) teaching union said members had been asked by councils to “blanket test” pupils instead.

In one example to be raised at the EIS annual general meeting later this week Midlothian Council was accused of ordering all staff to test pupils in March this year.
