5-14 in the Primary School: The First Four Years.
Malcolm, Heather; Byrne, Michel
The 5-14 Development Programme is a major reform encompassing the whole of the curriculum, assessment, national testing and reporting for pupils 5- to 14 years of age in Scotland. To monitor the early years of implementation of the program, the Scottish Office Education and Industry Department (SOEID) commissioned a national evaluation with a number of strands. This evaluation ran between March 1991 and March 1995. Coordination was handled from the Scottish Council for Research in Education (SCRE) which also undertook one of the strands' implementation in the primary school. This report is divided into six sections. The first section is an introduction that addresses research aims and methods, and the organization of the report. The second section covers the impact of 5-14 on curriculum practice, and the third covers assessment and national testing. The fourth section examines liaisons with secondary and pre-five sectors, and the fifth addresses management of 5-14. The last section provides an account of implementation of 5-14 in one particular school. (WJC)
