(For the benefit of readers who don’t live in England, in September there will be a new Computing Programme of Study (ie the specification laid down in the National Curriculum), and schools no longer have to use “Levels” to assess pupils’ work.)
I was involved in a conference about preparing for the new computing curriculum recently (see Planning for the new Computing curriculum), and one of the delegates asked me:
“But what are we supposed to do about assessment now?”
“Well”, I replied. “Regard it as an opportunity.”
Cue guffaws of laughter.
