Making Good Progress Pilots

Mike Baker talks to the DCSF’s chief adviser on school standards Mike Baker talks to the DCSF’s Chief Adviser on School Standards Sue Hackman about the Department’s Making Good Progress Pilots, which are assessing models of one-to-one tuition and single level testing. She reveals that, although discontinued at KS3 level, the initial findings for single level testing at KS2 appear positive, and that they may be rolled out across the country within three years. The 10 hours of catch-up one to one tuition in maths and English for those pupils who have fallen behind or who are ‘stuck’ also appear to have been successful. We also hear from a deputy head at a school which has taken part in the pilot using standardised approaches to assessment for learning.
