Assessment and Examinations


Wixams Academy is part the Bedford College Academies Trust (BCAT) and therefore follows the same values and ethos of BCAT.  We believe that assessment is a vital part of the learning process. Assessment is a diagnostic, formative and summative process. It provides a snapshot of a student’s attainment and provides information to help the teacher plan the next stage of an individual’s or group’s learning and to further develop the work of the student. It should also inform the student of their current position and how to reach the next stage. It should engage the student in the process of their learning.
