The measure

Use the tools of the great assessment toolkit to take accurate measurements. Measurements that provide useful information that can help make judgements and inform next steps. The more accurate the measure the more confident you can be in the effectiveness of your response.

The response

That information can then be used to check whether pupils have learnt what you think they have learnt, to identify when pupils are doing well so that you can challenge them to further explore the subject and to identify gaps in knowledge or misconceptions so that you can intervene to guide them back on track.

Weather any storm

Great assessment can provide stability during these challenging times of uncertainty caused by a series of major changes to national qualifications and national performance measures. A school that uses assessment primarily to promote long term learning will find they have the ability not only to weather this storm but continue to thrive in the face of any future ones.

Assessment Lead Programme
The Assessment Lead Programme is a truly innovative online learning platform. It will encourage you to re-think your approach to assessment and support you to lead improvement.
Over the course of a year, you will be guided to make your assessment approach more efficient, allowing you to make more reliable judgements about what pupils know, can do and need next. It is suitable for all contexts, and all stages.
In-person courses
We also run the Assessment Lead Programme as an in-person course, either in regional hubs over a longer period of time, or as an intensive, four-day residential.
Network with like-minded professionals from schools similar to yours, and learn from others with different contexts. Share best practice, create a local and global network of support, and enjoy the highest-quality training.
In-house training and consultancy
We also have considerable expertise in devising bespoke training sessions and communications events around assessment more generally, as well as advising and consulting.
With any such enquiry, it is impossible to take a one-size-fits-all approach, so use the button below to contact us, including the specifics of your enquiry, and we'll get back to you.
