Email sent to Roger Gough, KCC Education Cabinet member, on this subject included:
I and many parents of Year 5 students are wondering what KCC's timetable is for reviewing GL Assessment's performance in the provision of the new format Test this year and re-tendering (if required) for next year's Test...Would it be possible for some indication to be posted on the KCC website or to go out in a press release... [re:] when the cabinet/department plans to evaluate this year's Test and when it predicts being able to confirm arrangements for next year?
Response on Mr Gough's behalf earlier this month:
We will be publishing information about the tests in advance of registration next June. We will be carrying out an internal review of the process around the new Kent Test once the process has completed (I.e. once pupils have their results).
I did try!
