I challenge someone to argue that controlled assessments are a good and fair way of testing pupils. (taking all factors into account) Serious people only please.

Controlled assessments are good because you don't need to revise for them and you get to earn marks in a more realistic environment. They are also very good for the less bright students as you have to remember less. They also show the examiners that students have practical skills and not just a good memery.

We are assuming that they are taken as they are. So if a teacher helps a class when he/she shouldn't then that would be a weakness in controlled assessments as a GCSE test.
