Assessment must be inclusive – all assessment procedures must be used to inform and promote learning for all pupils

Inclusive assessment is an approach to assessment in mainstream settings where policy and practice are designed to promote the learning of all pupils as far as possible. The overall goal of inclusive assessment is that all assessment policies and procedures should support and enhance the successful inclusion and participation of all pupils vulnerable to exclusion, including those with SEN.

This was a main finding of the Assessment in Inclusive Settings project. The full recommendations are presented in the summary report addressed to policy makers and practitioners. More information on this project, visit the project web area.
