Additional Information: The main publication deriving from a Wellcome Trust funded research project to examine what lessons can be learnt from the cessation of formal, external testing at Key Stage 2 of science in Wales. Data were obtained in both Wales and England from a telephone survey of 600 respondents and focus group interviews involving a total of 74 participants. No comparable study has been undertaken and the findings, which are unexpected in places, are timely, given debates over Key Stage 2 testing in England and of policy relevance. 6640 words, in press, in one of the leading journals in the field of assessment.
