Assessment framework specification files for software suppliers developing management information systems (MIS).
These files are for suppliers developing software that will help local authorities, schools and academies to electronically submit 2016 assessment data using their MIS.
The files specify the framework against which teachers assess pupils’ attainment in the national curriculum. For each key stage or year group, they specify the:
- subject components or attainment targets (for example, reading and writing are components of English)
- nature of assessment
- possible outcomes
The framework also includes special educational needs and English as an additional language (EAL) criteria.
The files include:
- A comp - the main assessment component file, which contains all valid parameters
- A subj - contains subject codes and descriptions
- A type - gives access to codes and descriptions of all assessment methods
