The large scale standardized testing of individual students prior to Grades 9 and 10 is non-existent in the Sindh public education system. School tests are given to students but as these are not standardized it is difficult to identify whether the resulting scores are reliable indicators of the achievement of students. It also does not enable parents to assess the performance of their own children’s school as compared with other public and private schools.
To rectify this, the Government of Sindh, Education & Literacy Department is going to introduce annual Standardized Achievement Testing.
SATs test what students have learnt throughout the school year. They will be based on the National Curriculum and the student learning outcomes identified in the National Curriculum. Students in year 6 will be tested in language, mathematics and science.
