Tips for Parents (No.2): Understanding your child’s report card

You will receive a written report from your child’s school at the end of the school year. This report will give you information on your child’s progress and achievement in school. Schools must share the standardised test result with you when your child is in 2nd, 4th and 6th class. The result of a standardised test will appear as a number.

What is a standardised test?

Standardised tests measure your child’s achievement in literacy and numeracy compared to other children throughout the country at the same class level or age level. Schools are required to administer these tests at the end of second, fourth and sixth class.
