Assessing the new National Curriculum

What is the nature of assessment ?

This was one of many questions asked by David Gardner in a session at the Geography Teacher Educator's conference two weekends ago. I am slowly catching up with my blog posts from the event, and will finish off the report from the event over the next week now that we're on half term.

One of the outcomes from the event was the release of a new document that can also be downloaded from the GA's website, and which I will be using in a few forthcoming events with teachers.

The GA is working on supporting teachers through the development of frameworks for assessing students.
More to come on this...
