Flaws lead to scheme's end.
Education Minister Leighton Andrews admitted there are "significant problems" with the Welsh Government's child development assessment profiles (CDAPs).
Introduced in September, CDAPs provide a "baseline" of where children are when they enter primary school and help inform how far a child is making progress through the Foundation Phase.
It was welcomed by the sector as a standardised replacement to the 12 accredited baseline assessment schemes employed in Welsh schools.
But teachers pointed to flaws in the new system and questioned the amount of time needed to conduct assessments.
Mr Andrews said: "Work is already in hand to ensure we replace the CDAP."
