Improving assessment: We need you!

As an extension of the successful Digital Rapid Assessment Guide (DRAG) for nomadic pupils, STEP is currently developing a bespoke Rapid Assessment Guide for Adults (RAGA). The initiative aims to create a culturally appropriate and accessible tool to make quick assessments of new adult learners. Please get in touch with STEP if you would like to be involved in the design and development process.
