A decade on the academic who led the AFL campaign admits that the assessment method has failed to reach many classrooms.


When a warning against Assessment for Learning was published by an academic in Northern Ireland cautioning that these methods were too radical, Martin Montgomery wrote a paper on behalf of  the Council for Curriculum Examinations and Assessment (CCEA) in which he claimed that the Revised Curriculum wasn’t radical in the slightest and that the education academic was attempting to “scare” teachers. Who should parents trust;  CCEA, the organisation which gets it wrong on a regular basis or the professionals at the chalkface?
