ACME letter on the National Curriculum assessments 2016 sample materials

13 November 2014

ACME wrote to the Standards and Testing Agency (STA) regarding the National Curriculum assessments: 2016 sample materials for key stage 1 and key stage 2 published in July 2014.  

In the letter ACME expresses concern that the sample materials do not place emphasis on the National curriculum aims of understanding and reasoning. ACME also highlights that the most difficult examples, presented as they are, will not be accessible to the majority of children.

ACME received a response from the STA which can be found here. The letter provides information on the intended purpose of the sample materials and details the support materials STA plan to release in 2015.
