Event description

Description

Assessment in English schools is not designed to help children learn. Its main purpose is to police schools and teachers, and it does untold damage in the process. It causes stress to children, demoralises teachers, and provides little useful information to parents. It narrows the curriculum and penalises schools in the most disadvantaged areas.

The More Than A Score campaign has now published "Beyond the exam factory: alternatives to high-stakes testing". The book draws on a wealth of experience and expertise of professional educators, to provide real assessment alternatives for Primary and Secondary schools. The launch will feature guest speakers including NUT National President, Louise Regan, and all those attending will receive a free copy of the book.
