The end of SATS (NCTs)

Recommended Posts

Am I reading this wrongly or doesn't the explanation say that they are going to increase testing, not stop it?

That is how it seems. They have a bit of a cleft stick I think. They know SATs are a problem and they need to get rid of them or at least ameliorate the "test everything which moves" mentality.

OTOH They won't admit that is what they are doing so they have to introduce another testing regime.

I think Government "consultations" are a sham but if the NUT does not put its point of view the government will claim there is no opposition to its proposals.

A question - is the English performance pay system based on student test results and is it working? We are being threatened with it here by our federal govt.
