Assessment: the alternative (FORUM 2)
Author: MORE THAN A SCORE
MORE THAN A SCORE
This position statement presents a summative argument against current structures and practices of assessment in England’s primary schools, and some key principles for its replacement. The text was agreed by More Than A Score, a broad coalition of professional, curriculum, research and campaigning organisations opposed to the current assessment system and its links to accountability, and published early in 2017.
