A New Assessment System for Wales
It has been a year since the final version of Curriculum for Wales 2022 was released, and here at the Assessment Foundation we have been busy, alongside our focus groups, planning and designing a fitting assessment system to complement this new curriculum.
We are pleased to announce that we will be making a trial version available from September 2021.
“There is a ‘buzz’ about this new tool across the Assessment Foundation and beyond. As schools prepare to implement the new curriculum we are delighted that this new system has been built in collaboration with schools. It’s what they are seeking, and it’s one which will be flexible and adaptable.”
- Philip Dixon, CEO
One of the strengths of the new curriculum is that it provides a continuous journey through a child’s full-time education. There was a strong emphasis in our focus groups on the need to show a rounded picture of each child. So, we have combined the two in the new system name, Taith360.
With Taith360 you can ...
Taith360 will be available to both primary and secondary schools to capture a child’s whole educational journey. Taith360 also connects to your MIS, so set-up and data updates from your MIS are done automatically – saving a lot of admin!
The Assessment Foundation will provide an exemplar framework of progressive statements building towards the descriptions of learning for 2021 – but all schools will be able to add their own customised statements – or just use the descriptions of learning as they are.
Throughout development, schools have emphasised the need for flexibility and manageability – so we’ve made sure that we’ve reflected that every step of the way.
We’ll be sharing further details with you through the year as development progresses but if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our support team on 0300 234 2345 or email email@example.com
