Baseline assessment: We can do better
Assessment is part of education, but only when assessments are used to support children, not for 'accountability frameworks’. If you think our children deserve better than the baseline assessment – sign the petition to scrap it.
Find more about why the NUT and others oppose the baseline.
The Year of Assessment - Life Without Levels
The NUT is developing a NEW free online professional development resource for assessment with the Curriculum Foundation, with whom we have worked previously on the Year of the Curriculum programme. The aim of the programme is to help teachers develop their expertise and to reclaim professional control over assessment.
