International educational assessment systems and their involvement of teachers

A report describing international assessment systems and involvement of teachers in assessment.

The regulator commissioned the report by AlphaPlus to provide different perspectives on national assessment systems for us to consider as we reimagine GCSEs in response to Curriculum for Wales.

The report contains information about assessment systems in 12 jurisdictions, with four of them - Estonia, Ontario in Canada, Queensland in Australia and New Zealand - selected for more in-depth investigation.

These four jurisdictions all have a reputation for substantial involvement of teachers in the assessment system and have other aspects that are of interest to us in Wales, including experience of recent or ongoing reform.
