Our Vision

Assessment – what we stand for. A Summary

Assessment: the alternative

Primary school children in England are some of the most tested in the world. National standardised tests used to rank and judge schools reduce children to statistics. This is grossly unfair – children are more than a score.

More Than a Score has brought together parents, teachers and experts in education and child development. We want not only to campaign for reform of the present system, but to advocate for a better alternative for assessment and accountability.

More Than a Score believes that there is already strong evidence available on what works- you can find links to some of it on our research and resources page.

We hope that we can engage with the Department of Education to develop a better system of assessment for every child, and a fairer system of accountability for every school.
