End of Year Tests – Primary

19 May 2015

This week, we are carrying out tests in Years 3 – 6 as part of our usual end of year procedures. These tests, produced by the British government, relate directly to the school’s curriculum. They help to show what the children have learned and retained during the year and provide evidence about the children’s strengths and weaknesses.

The tests are in core areas of the curriculum – English, maths and, in Year 6 only, science. We also use writing tasks taken from the British curriculum tests, translated into Vietnamese, with the accompanying standardised marking schemes to assess Vietnamese writing.

Tests scores are used to measure student’s progress

Tests scores are then used along with the rest of the evidence a teacher has about each child’s progress and achievement to produce an overall “teacher assessment” for the end of the year. This teacher assessment is then used for your child’s end of year report.

The data from the tests is also used by the school to check our standards against schools in England and other British Schools around the world.

How can you help your child?

We don’t want the children to become worried about their end of year tests because anxious children are not able to concentrate as well. So here are some tips for you at home in order to help your child:

1. Remember that your child cannot fail. These tests are not exams where a child can pass or fail.

2. Please encourage your child to be confident about their ability to do well. Explain that the tests are an opportunity for them to show what they can do.

3. Make sure your child gets enough sleep.

4. Also, please make sure they eat breakfast every day.

5. During test week, children should continue with their normal routines and have time to relax and play.
