Assessment To support and assist teachers in engaging with the new assessment system at junior cycle, an online Assessment Toolkit is under development. The toolkit is an essential element of quality assurance at junior cycle. When fully developed and populated, it will include the range of assessment supports, advice, guidelines and exemplification that will enable schools and teachers to engage with the new assessment system in an informed way, with confidence and clarity. Much of the material available will be downloadable and capable of being transferred into hard copy. It will provide schools and teachers with a bank of sample assessment material and resources to support them in their work on junior cycle assessment.
