ASCL publishes guidance on teacher-assessed grades

The Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL) has today published guidance about teacher-assessed grades following the decision to cancel this summer’s GCSE and A-level exams.
The Department for Education has outlined its plans for a system of moderated teacher-assessment in England. More detailed information about how the system will work is expected from Ofqual and the exam boards shortly.

In the interim, ASCL Deputy Director of Policy Duncan Baldwin, has written a paper to help schools and colleges prepare for the new system and which is based on our best assessment of how it will operate. The paper can be accessed here.

ASCL will be producing similar guidance on the arrangements in Wales and Northern Ireland in due course.
