The information gathered on pupils’ attainment is supportive of promoting a culture of improvement and enhancing teachers’ individual and collaborative practice, and the school’s capacity to respond to individual learning needs, and differentiate teaching and learning activities as necessary. The accumulated assessment data will enable schools to communicate with parents in relation to their child’s progress, and can be used in providing post-primary schools with a more holistic profile of learners when they transition from primary school.
