The curriculum as a progression model

Common approaches to assessment include the labelling (emerging, expected, exceeding) of attainment or it's quantification (3 points of progress). This quantitative approach to assessment has very little value beyond national evaluations. Chris will present the case for demonstrate how schools can create a qualitative progression model.
