Abolish compulsory end-of-unit tests
Higher courses are now dominated by revision periods, tests, resits, letters to parents, recording results, missed deadlines and teachers chasing after pupils who have missed their tests.
John Greenlees is quite right to call for the abolition of compulsory end-of-unit tests which don't contribute anything meaningful to pupils' learning. I don't have a single colleague who supports the use of NABs.
