Chaired by Dr. Andy Chandler-Grevatt with Julian Clark (AQA) and other exam board representatives.

The effects of the pandemic in schools in England and recent changes in relation to examinations this year have left schools and teachers in a turmoil. While clearly there were lessons learned from the assessment processes carried out last year, the rapidly changing environment over recent weeks cannot yet provide definite answers. However, while recognising there are difficulties, there remain some key assessment issues that need discussing and addressing for science teaching and learning. We are therefore delighted that AQA, OCR and Edexcel assessment folk will be coming to ASEConf2021 to outline some of the ways they have been developing aspects of science assessment and raising ideas that teachers might focus on in using assessment tools and approaches with their learners. There will be opportunity to ask questions and while we may not know exact details of what is likely to happen, this session will provide some background, support and professional learning about assessment.
