    We will continue to use it and have signed up to Field Trial the Modelling Tasks in January.

    Never had any issues with the software so that is why we are continuing with it, as well as a method in which to assess or students.

    I took great pleasure in removing all traces from our network a couple of weeks ago.

    We're going ahead with it as well, with pupils tackling it in their own time.

    Damn you /envy

    We are using it here for "on the spot, unofficial" assessment, so teachers know how well the kids are doing

    It's a pretty sad state of affairs if they need to use that pile of poo to know how their kids are getting on!!

    Even then it'll only give them info on how the kids can perform tedious, low-level, prescribed tasks & nothing at all about any interesting, imaginative or useful IT. Or maybe they're not expecting the kids to use IT in an interesting & imaginative way - small wonder kids get bored & disillusioned!

    Rant over!

    Happy New Year everyone.

    We scrapped it, and we all celebrated.

    then a new head of ICT steps in.... wants to do the KS3 tests. We all cried.

    As I work in a special school we don't have to worry about SATs. Our kids wouldn't be able to do them.
