The Curriculum for Excellence was introduced into Scottish schools a number of years ago, and at that time teachers were concerned about how to measure pupils progress. This resulted in most schools buying in some form of standardised testing. Now the Scottish Government is talking about re-introducing National Testing into both Primary and Secondary schools.
Parents are voicing concerns about the pressure that testing puts on children. An article in the Herald Scotland gives the results of an on-line survey of members of the Scottish Parent Teacher Council.
