A look at the problems with Baseline assessment by Ken Jones, from the National Education Union.
More than a score
The SATs regime is failing a generation of children. Throughout their primary school education, we put children through a system based on high-stakes testing. But surely learning is about more than getting a perfect score on a test?
NEU is a proud member of More Than A Score, a growing coalition of parents, teachers, heads and education experts, working together to call for change in the government’s over-testing regime.
Why teachers, parents, unions and schools need to join together and boycott baseline assessment.
BERA’s expert panel has demonstrated that the Government’s plans for baseline assessment are built on wishful thinking, not evidence, say the NEU.
