Imaginative Assessment

With massive inequalities emerging between those who have enjoyed uninterrupted tuition and those who have had to repeatedly isolate, who have fallen ill or not had the technology to engage remotely, students' progress can no longer be assessed through a 'one-size-fits-all' examination at the end of the academic year - even if it is put back by a few weeks. We must trust teachers to accurately assess the abilities of their students and campaign to have their rigorously moderated judgements seen as having equal status and validity with the public examination results that would normally be available.
