Assessing Performance in Design and Technology

  • N/A N/A Trent Polytechnic


The article which follows is based upon a report prepared by a special working group of the Assessment of Performance Unit of the DES which was asked to identify those aspects of an understanding of both design and technology most likely to be reflected in primary and secondary schools; to consider when and where abilities in design and technology appear in the school curriculum and to suggest how these aspects of pupils' development might be assessed.

This document, which was submitted to the Unit by the group, aims to share the findings of the group with all concerned with primary and secondary education and seeks, in return, the widest possible range of comments which should be sent to Mr. G. Hicks, HMI, Assessment of Performance Unit, Elizabeth House, York Road, London, SEI 7PH by 31 March 1982.
