Funded Research

The Assessment Research and Development programme was established by the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment to support knowledge of, engagement with and critical reflection on educational assessment theory and practice. In this initial phase, a particular focus was placed on proposals relevant to the junior cycle of post-primary education, but proposals associated with assessment in early childhood, primary or senior cycle education in Ireland were also considered.

The 2015 initiative is now finished. The completed research projects were showcased at an event on 29th September 2016. The final reports from the research projects are available.
