Jones, Bethan; Coakley, Ruth; Fenn, Lisa; Earle, Sarah; Davies, Dan – Primary Science, 2018
Making accurate, manageable assessments of children's scientific understanding, skills and progress is one of the biggest challenges facing primary teachers. In Wales, where Statutory Assessment Tests (SATs) at age 11 were phased out in 2005, teacher assessment has been the only source of pupil attainment data in science for a much longer period…
