Primary assessment in England: open consultation (March 2017)
The DfE and STA have launched a public consultation exercise about the future of the primary assessment system in England.
The main themes are:
- the best starting point to measure progress that pupils make at primary school;
- the role and operation of teacher assessment (TA);
- how to build on the strengths of the EYFSP;
- how to support and improve KS1/KS2 TA, including the assessment of writing.
There is a parallel consultation on assessment arrangements for pupils working below the standard of national curriculum tests.
