Cantonal reference tests ECR
The cantonal reference tests (ECRs) are intended to contribute to the quality of the school system, to harmonize the educational requirements in the canton in order to ensure equal treatment between pupils and to provide teachers with external reference points for the classroom in order to assess pupils’ progress. Depending on the grade level, students’ results in these tests are taken into account in promotion and guidance decisions. In addition to the assessment carried out in the classroom, RCTs make it possible to compare the results obtained by pupils or schools with the canton average. These tests are standardised, as are the conditions for the award, the correction procedures and the scale.
Depending on the years of schooling, RCTs cover one to three subjects, and the ways in which student results are taken into account differ:
