Entry from British & World English dictionary
(In the UK) a standard test given to schoolchildren to assess their progress in a core subject of the national curriculum.
- All standard assessment tasks were carried out in accordance with UK guidelines.
- However, a number of students felt that their most powerful learning experiences involved interaction with others, and that standard assessment tasks did not really foster this kind of learning.
- Last year's standard assessment task results for 11-year-olds, in which more than half the children failed to reach the expected attainment level in mathematics and English, are a national scandal.
