*Teacher Observation *Standardised Tests –English

Assessment is an integral part of the Northern Ireland Curriculum. The main objectives of assessment are to: underpin and inform teaching, and establish what each child knows, can do, and understands. Class teachers assess children in different ways e.g. through observation, as well as oral, practical and written tests.



At the end of each Key Stage (P4 & P7), pupils undergo formal assessment and are attributed levels of attainment in English and Maths. Competency in ICT is also tested at the end of P7, and pupils are accredited levels by CCEA in the different strands of the ICT curriculum.
