ASCL’s position on assessment is set out in A Great Education for Every Child: A Blueprint for a Fairer Education System
. Recommendation 10 proposes a reduction in the burden of assessment at 16, partially through the greater use of technology.
We are particularly interested in adaptive approaches, which we believe could make assessment more targeted, reduce bureaucracy and costs, increase the accuracy of grading, and enable more young people to demonstrate and be recognised for what they can do.
