This chapter focuses on issues surrounding the relationship of the assessment and attainment of children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities that arise from visual, hearing, or multi-sensory impairments. It examines some of the implications of an assessment system in England that pulls in two opposing directions. This system can be found in the framework of government policy that was put in place by the Labour Administration, through the Every Child Matters Agenda (ECM).
