Helping teachers make the most of classroom assessment

Classroom assessment is a vital part of teaching and learning, helping teachers to track the progress of their students and informing their decisions about next steps. Many teachers do not have time, or lack the knowledge, skills or confidence required, to develop their own classroom assessments. As a result they use commercially available tests to assess their students. As test developers it is our responsibility to help to ensure that these assessments are well developed to provide reliable evidence that can be used to support teacher judgements. It is also important that there is guidance for teachers on how to interpret the test data in a meaningful and robust way.  ,It may also be valuable to provide information and guidance to teachers on how the data from assessments can be used to identify the next steps that students need to take in their learning.
