If I knew that I would not be able to find out the results of my childrens tests I would refuse to let them take unessassary tests as a form of protest. I believe the child definately has the right to know exactly how they have done, why bother otherwise?
The children themselves are told the test results (individually by the teacher), but nothing is ever written down and teachers are discouraged from telling the parents. My Y4 child had about 9 or 10 different test scores reeled off to me when I went to see the teacher to seek clarification about her report.
That's another thing that bugs me (omg - school reports - another bugbear
) - when my eldest daughter was at the school the reports were all hand-written and clearly personal to the child involved. Now they are all word-processed and it's difficult to tell how much of it is specific to your child. A lot is simply regurgitation of what the class has been doing. (e.g. little Jimmy is now able to xyz.....) I'm all for saving time and effort but don't see the point of reports that say everything but tell you nothing...
