Measuring concepts and constructs at Meols Cop High School

One example of a redesigned assessment policy is Meols Cop High School in Southport. They focused on measuring the concepts and skills needed to master the new national curriculum. Instead of grades, teachers at Meols Cop High School now use arrows, accompanied by a code for what went well and a code for ‘even better if’.


Different models of measuring impact

Breaking down assessment in this way has allowed Meols Cop to place a strong emphasis on diagnostic assessment.
