Hayes, Sean; Jopling, Michael; Gul, Ruki – London Review of Education, 2018

Nadeem, Rizwana – London Review of Education, 2015
This paper is a reflection on action research I conducted in two classrooms to explore the effectiveness of feedback.

White, John – London Review of Education, 2013
It is time to replace the examination regime at 16 and 18 by something more appropriate. The coalition government has been solidifying its place by its Baccalaureate reforms at both ages, but this is a move in quite the wrong direction. Whatever the wider purposes that the examination system may serve, its core aim is to find out how well students…

Duffy, Gavin; Elwood, Jannette – London Review of Education, 2013

Isaacs, Tina – London Review of Education, 2013
Despite the fact that students are often articulate about qualifications policy matters, their perspectives are rarely listened to. This is because governments shape qualifications policy according to pre-set beliefs and are unwilling to countenance dissonant or outsider views. Using the Diploma qualification and inclusion of vocational…
