Term Definition
baseline assessment

this usually refers to the assessment of children when they first enter primary school. It is used to provide information about levels of readiness for learning to identify pupils who may experience difficulties in school and to provide a baseline against which future progress can be measured. In this last sense the term can be used generally to refer to any assessment designed to establish performance prior to engaging in some learning activity experience course or programme.
