Testing is frequently the key aspect of education, determining not just what is taught, but how. In such situations it is crucial that the systems in place are not just robust and reliable, but are relevant to the needs of the educational context, as identified by all the stakeholders, including students and staff. Where testing can be more flexible it is essential that those designing the systems are aware of the options, such that the best use can be made of this flexibility maximising student motivation and engagement.
