The Scottish Government today announced that ACER have been awarded the contract to deliver standardised national assessments for schools across the country.
Here at the Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring (CEM) at Durham University, we provide assessment tools and data to schools and education authorities in over twenty local authority areas in Scotland. We will continue to work closely with these education authorities and schools, this academic year and beyond.
In response to today’s announcement, Professor Rob Coe, Director of CEM at Durham University, said:“We have always found that there is real passion, commitment and wisdom about education in Scotland and a real desire to work together to find collective solutions to problems. Scotland is now moving to the next level and leading the world with the National Improvement Framework for Scottish Education.”
