Scottish Office Education Dept., Edinburgh.
This booklet contains some examples of the assessment items used in the fifth English language survey of the Assessment of Achievement Programme (AAP). The examples in the booklet are intended to provide teachers with a clear idea of the range of items used in the survey in the hope that they will provide material for personal professional development and for discussion in inservice training sessions in schools and other locations. The examples provided in the booklet should be seen in the context of the survey as a whole. The booklet is divided into two parts, reflecting the structure of the survey. The first part of the booklet provides two examples of reading assessment used in the survey: one information text and associated tasks used at P4, and one narrative text and associated tasks used at P7 and S2. These examples are preceded by a brief description of the different types of assessment used in assessing reading. The second part provides examples of writing assessment used in the survey along with sample responses. (NKA)
