Tim Oates: “The future of assessment”

We’re back again with another in our series of podcasts, delivered free to your device! We were really pleased with the engagement and feedback from Professor Jonathan Sharples’ talk last month, so – by popular demand – here we are again!

This month, we are delighted to present Tim Oates, Group Director of Assessment Research and Development at our partner organisation, Cambridge Assessment. Tim came and spoke to our first ever cohort of Assessment Leads at their graduation event in June this year, held at Durham University’s Hild Bede College.

It was an extremely insightful and thought-provoking presentation, and as per last month, we provide the slides here as a PDF download for you. As ever, please do subscribe to receive the latest episodes straight to your device, and if you enjoy it, please rate and review!


If you are inspired by listening to the legend that is Tim Oates, and you would like to join the leading edge of assessment practice in schools, check out our Assessment Lead Programme. We’ve created an innovative and powerful programme so that practitioners can learn what they need to know to assess effectively and efficiently. More than one-quarter of this year’s cohort of 50 schools has already been snapped up, and registrations are open. Visit the Assessment Lead Programme page to sign up.
