    What a shame!!!
    And I had only just spent £1500 on a new server yesterday for this exact purpose.

    Never mind.

    Re: Yay?

    Our gamble paid off. Our SMT just ignored these tests. I raised the idea of these tests being abandoned on this site some time back and everyone said no, never. Nice feeling now! Maybe my SMT are useful after all, won't hold my breath though!

    Re: Yay?

    just had this emailed to me from the dfes

    http://www.teachernet.gov.uk/teachin...ests/ictpilot/

    if you read the FAQ's at the bottom

    Does this mean I don't have to use the test?
    Yes. The use of the test will be optional, but we strongly recommend schools to take part in the summer pilot and use the materials that will support assessment for learning.

    Whew! Wasn't looking forward to being forced to try to shoehorn it onto our creaking NT4 K6-2 400 PDC whilst explaining that it wasn't going to be very happy!

    Re: Yay?

    well this is a right git i just made the school shell out for 2 new servers and 62 new machines because of this and the fact the older ones in the it suites wouldn't run the software. saying that though they did need replacing!
