The APPG for Schools, Learning and Assessment (the APPG), chaired by Flick Drummond MP (Conservative) and Emma Hardy MP (Labour), launched its inquiry into assessment reform on 30 November 2022. It considered a vast range of evidence for its inquiry into assessment reform with submissions from university based academics who reported on their recent findings on England’s assessment systems as well as education campaign groups, think tanks and education consultants. Evidence was also heard from academics with expertise in assessment reform taking place in Australia, Norway and Singapore. The inquiry also received oral and written submissions from primary and secondary school heads and teachers, parents, and post-16 students, all with first-hand experience of current assessment systems in England.

Following the inquiry the Group have published our report 'Towards a fairer, more useful and  fit-for-purpose way to assess children  and young people in the 21st century'.
