“All assessment and other processes should bring people back to the content of the curriculum (and the extent to which it has been taught and learned), instead of focusing on abstracted and arbitrary expressions of the curriculum such as ‘levels”.

(Report by the Expert Panel for the National Curriculum Review)

There are a number of compelling reasons why National Curriculum levels have been dropped. While the original idea of levels was that children worked their way up the levels, they have become overly influenced by other factors. Children were labelling themselves and comparing themselves to others in an adverse way, and they have been encouraged to move at an undue pace through the levels. But what are schools and individual teachers doing to respond to these changes and will these responses be acceptable to inspectors?

Topics include: 

  • Fundamentals of Assessment in schools
  • Teacher records and tracking attainment and progress
  • Assessment practice which support pupils’ learning as it happens
  • Reports and Parent evenings

Course tutor: John Medlicott
