The projection of curricular gradation by age became a ‘Western cultural theme of great importance, influencing both the conception of education and that of child development’ (Serpell, 1999: 117). Most systems of education worldwide are predicated on the notion that learners enter and exit from graded classes as members of a cohort. In some systems learners progress from graded class to graded class, automatically, at a regular time of the year; in others, progress is determined by an assessment of learning achievement.

Assessment Multigrade classes do not lend themselves to traditional models of graded assessment, based on summative measures of curriculum coverage and tied to particular grade level content. Because the multigrade class contains more than one grade level of pupil this type of assessment is not only timeconsuming for the teacher to administer, but also inappropriate. Hargreaves (2001) has written the most developed theoretical paper on assessment in multigrade classes to date. She suggests that ‘assessment for learning’ is a more appropriate model of assessment in the multigrade classroom.
