Waking up today to this: -
But I do agree with Roger Distill comments: -
When he heard of the QCA decision, Mr Distill said he doubted there was time to stop the test going ahead in 2008.
"There are a lot of people with a vested interest in the success of the test," he said.
"We shall see, but I'm not terribly optimistic."
I can't see it being cancelled and too many people in high places want the test to go ahead but interesting date naa choose 2013 as by then we will have had few years of Mr Brown in charge and two years after a general election....
The problem with TAL is that they have historically be over estimated and that is one of reasons for the test as certain culture developed in some schools to make sure that ict TAL are over estimated to keep levels up etc.
