    <font face="Calibri">Does anyone have a strongly recommended scheme or process of (primarily) summative KS3/KS4 assessment that is genuinely useful for tracking and motivating student progress over a period of years?</font>

    <font size="3">Specifically, I want something that is capable and effective (operating over a period of years) in identifying specific areas of strength and weakness for each student, and showing the degree of improvement in those particular areas. I want this because I feel that too often:</font>i)
    <font face="Calibri">If you feel that such assessment is too burdensome to justify the benefits, then what exactly are the barriers? [if it's primarily the burden on teachers of marking more tests, and recording more data, I can see technology overcoming those barriers imminently] </font><font face="Calibri">Cheers, MMT</font>
