Project Summary

Consulting Pupils on the Assessment of their Learning (CPAL) sought to understand the possibilities, processes and consequences of pupils in primary and post-primary schools participating more fully in identifying and assessing their own learning. It extended the existing TLRP Network Project (Phase 1) Consulting Pupils about Teaching and Learning: Process, Impact and Outcomes, based at the University of Cambridge in a Northern Ireland context but with a distinctive focus on the pupil voice in the assessment of their learning. It focussed specifically on the involvement of key stage 2 pupils in the development of Annual Pupil Profiles (part of the system replacing the 11+ Transfer Tests) and on the means for engaging and consulting pupils in the assessment of their learning through Assessment for Learning approaches in the classroom
