Assessment without levels has been in place for over a year, with primary schools having selected and implemented their own unique systems. The Portswood Teaching School Alliance assessment conference brings together schools, from across Southampton, who have offered to share their journey on developing aspects of assessment.
Cambridge Assessment's Group Director for Assessment Research and Development, Tim Oates CBE, has been invited to give the keynote speech. Tim, one of the world's foremost experts on the school curriculum, was asked to lead the Government's review of the national curriculum in 2010.
The conference consists of workshops that will focus on the progression of learning in light of the curriculum changes and new assessment systems in English, Mathematics and Physical Education.
The conference will conclude with an input from Southampton Inclusion Partnership, exploring some ‘live’ issues with regards assessment of children below the ‘working towards’ standard.
