New Reception Baseline Assessment


The Standards and Testing Agency (STA) has published an information leaflet about the new reception baseline assessment.

It includes information about:

  • why it is being introduced;
  • what it will look like;
  • how results will be used; and
  • the development process.

The STA will invite a sample of schools to participate in trialling the new assessment in Aut18. 

All schools with YR classes will be invited to take part in the national pilot (2019/2020 academic year).
