I know Kent CC have consulted schools on changing the format of the 11+ tests but does anyone know when details of any changes will be announced?

Just came across this today, looks like no change until 2015?

Clear as mud. Why don't they talk about improving kent schools to level the playing field?

The contract for the 2014 exams has to be signed by July 31 this year at the latest.

If this article is correct it would suggest that they have renewed GL Assessment for the 2014 sitting with no changes to the format, and that they are considering signing up to something different for the September 2015 sitting. Things have slipped by a year it would seem without any acknowledgement that this is the case in this press article at any rate.

Only a FOI request will get this straight.

I hope it hasn't changed for September 2014 - it all seems too soon for whoever the provider is to "get it right" unless they are going to copycat another authority that has something tried and tested that is better than the status quo.

Why is public information in Kent always so hard to get and why are educational decisions such a mess-up? Weird.

A little job for you, Mystery. Make sure you report back all the details. :D

If they are eventually going to use a sats based assessment, I wonder what level you need to be?

As it mentions 'two tests' would that suggest CEM, as is rumoured? I feel sorry for poor old Bexley, having the new test sprung on them.

It could be. Or maybe they are going to tender for two tests. Gl assessment could do something different. There must be more than two test providers in the English speaking world. Whoever wishes to come forward and tender can do so.

I don't think they are going to do sats based tests. That's just the ambiguous quote. Levels are probably being abolished anyhow.
