This document has been produced in order to provide Post Primary schools with a framework for designing and developing a policy on assessment in accordance with all relevant Department of Education and Skills (DES) policy, circulars and publications. This document has been created in line with DES Circular 0067/20
Circular 0067/2020 applies to all instances where psychometric tests (either ability, aptitude or achievement) are administered.
This resource contains four sections as follows:
- A sample ‘Assessment Policy’ which may be adjusted for use in postprimary schools.
- A sample ‘Parental Consent to Assessment’ form
- A sample ‘FAQ information sheet' for parents/guardians
- A list of key policies, circulars and publications on topics relating to assessment in post primary schools
Content for consideration is included within the sample 'Assessment Policy' and schools may adjust / overwrite this content in line with the unique needs of their school.
You download the 'templates' as seperate documents; by saving to your device you can then type directly into these templates, or you can delete the prefilled content and print.
