  • Page 10 of BtC 5 provides a summary of the framework. The framework provides advice on the what, when and how of assessment-emphasising the need to use a variety of approaches and designing assessment that is valid, reliable and proportionate to the nature of learning being assessed. The framework also goes on to outline other purposes and uses of assessment information including for reporting, informing self-evaluation for improvement and to monitor standards over time. The over-riding aim of the framework is that assessment supports learning to ensure that every child and young person achieves the highest possible standards of achievement. The being ready for professional dialogue in assessment and reporting provides some starter questions to explore these issues.
