I have been discussing assessment in the new landscape devoid of levels. It seems to me important that we endeavour to preserve assessment information by reporting on a profile rather than loose assessment information by aggregating it into a single grade. I found and just want to remember this quote by Dylan Wiliam: “A man with one foot in boiling water and another in freezing water is not, on average, comfortable”.
