Education Datalab recently contributed evidence to the Education Select Committee’s inquiry into primary assessment.

Among the points made by Datalab are that:

  • using assessment for curriculum compliance must be done with care;
  • we need a reliable age five baseline assessment;
  • teacher assessment should not be used in statutory assessment;
  • a simpler floor standard would be fairer and more transparent;
  • we should avoid over-interpreting Key Stage data.
