The government has announced that a teacher-led commission is to be established to enable primary schools to move away from the levels system of assessment.
Speaking at an event hosted by think tank Reform, school reform minister Nick Gibb said assessment using levels was misleading to parents and failed to ensure children acquired a good grasp of the basics.
In his speech, the school reform minister said that the commission will help schools develop their own, more accurate assessment systems that truly show how a child is performing in the classroom.
