This timely seminar will consider next steps for reform to primary assessment and the implications for accountability.
It follows the ongoing government consultation and the recently published Education Select Committee inquiry into the purpose, benefits and drawbacks of testing at primary level since the removal of national curriculum levels.
Overall, sessions at this seminar will look at:
• Proposals to re-introduce a reception baseline and lessons learnt from the previous baseline, discontinued in 2016
• The future format and role of the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile and the most effective way of measuring a child’s ‘School-readiness’
• Reforms to testing at Key Stage one and Key Stage two - statutory status, accountability implications and improving the transition to secondary
• ‘Best fit’ marking - the opportunities and challenges provided by giving more flexibility for teachers
• Workload for teachers and the position of teachers’ professional judgement in the statutory assessment system
• Assessing pupils working below the standards of national curriculum tests - measuring pupil progress for pupils with SEND and impact of the removal of statutory assessment using performance scales
