Gove: schoolchildren should be subjected to regular tests - Telegraph:
Pupils should be tested every year to stop them “drifting” between key stages of their education, Michael Gove said today.
Schools should assess pupils at regular stages because it helps children “instinctively” remember information and boosts their ability to perform complex tasks, it was claimed.
The Education Secretary insisted he was not advocating the introduction of new national tests beyond current compulsory exams at 11 and 16.
