Planning what we are going to assess, rather than how we are going to assess has taken up the lion’s share of my time. The sheer weight of curriculum reform has done little to alleviate teacher workload. One reason we are continuing our work with Quick Key and pursuing our interest in diagnostic questioning. It was therefore a pleasant surprise to be formally invited by Walter Duncan (Co-Founder, Quick Key) to join their Vanguard Ambassador Program. We look forward to supporting this very exciting assessment product, sharing our successes and product development ideas.
