Title:
Thoughts on the 11 Plus
Authors:
Leonard, Madeleine; Davey, Ciara
Abstract:
The purpose of the study was to provide a forum in which children could articulate their experiences and views on the transfer test procedure. The study utilised three distinct methods of data collection. These included focus group interviews with children attending eight primary schools in Belfast, stories written by children on their experiences of sitting the 11 plus exam and receiving their result, and picture drawn by children regarding their thoughts on the 11 plus. The majority of the children who took part in the research outline the stress and pressure they face as they go through the various stages associated with doing the 11 plus.
