Mr. Freud

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether his Department has reached its conclusions about possible methods of comparing examination results from different types of school system; and if he will make a statement.

Sir Keith Joseph

[pursuant to his reply, 28 March 1985, c. 298]: I am considering suggestions for further research into factors affecting pupil performance following my statement to the House on 15 November 1984 at columns 698–99. The Government's policies on examinations and assessment and monitoring were set out in chapters 3 and 13 of the Government's White Paper "Better Schools" (Cmnd. 9469).
