Redesign assessment methods

Through the 5 Areas of Development, a range of methods are used to assess learners' progress.

There is a strong focus on formative and anecdotal observations as opposed to quantitative assessment. Through weekly reviews of learners' roadmaps, assessment is immediate rather than summative and interventions can be made quickly to ensure students are on track with their roadmaps. The philosophy behind many of the assessments is to allow the learner to demonstrate what they have learnt in the way they feel most able to, such as through crafts, writing or speaking.
