22nd Century Skills: Future-proofing Assessment

  • Future-proofed systems need diversity - why do we push students through a system that wipes out diversity and replaces it with a single number, grade or ranking?
  • If we are going to retain diversity we need software to capture it with a better framework than employability lists and soon-to-be-outdated 21st Century skills
  • Students need to feel that assessment is for their own development and engage with it on that basis - teacher feedback needs to happen after or alongside their own
