Bulletin 4 - Boycott Of New Assessment Arrangements
At the Annual INTO Northern Conference in Derry at the beginning of March INTO delegates unanimously passed the following motion:
‘Conference condemns CCEA and the Department of Education for the introduction of a cross-curricular skills based assessment which is not fit for purpose. Conference calls on the Northern Committee to initiate a boycott of the cross-curricular assessment arrangements until such time as they are teacher-friendly, work-load proofed and fit for purpose, in line with INTO policy. Conference further calls on Northern Committee to boycott the introduction of assessing using ICT until the issues surrounding numeracy and communication have been resolved.’
