S5W-11795: Tavish Scott (Shetland Islands)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 4 October 2017

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the comment in its news release of 22 September 2017, Improving education, that it will only have access to national level data from standardised national assessments, whether the (a) tender and (b) contract for the provision of the current national tests specified that ministers should be able to access all data and, in light of the announcement, whether it now plans to permanently remove any such entitlement.

Answered by: John Swinney 24 October 2017

We are currently considering the terms of the Scottish National Standardised Assessment contract in relation to the provision of assessment data.
