Developing a Policy on Assessment in Post Primary Schools

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.
