    Yes as we find them to be a good way of base lining the students.

    KS3

    I would agree. I fail to understand what they test
    With that 'home made' interface, it's like taking
    your driving test on a bycycle and using that performance
    as a guide to your driving ability

    We did up until last year, but discussions I have had with the new head of ICT means we won't be continuing this year.

    We dumped it as soon as it was announced it wasn't being pursued. Biggest pile of poo I've ever come across.

    Oh, I forgot....(how could I forget - perhaps because of the trauma I've erased it from my conciousness?)....ALAN.....

    ALAN always gets stick as well as the KS3. Why does nobody slag off the Assett Languages stuff? ALAN is perfect compared to that!
