Part 3: Making Assessments

Description

A primary teacher gathers evidence from her Key Stage 2 pupils as they tackle maths tasks outside the classroom, in this third episode of a four-part series on the pilot version of Assessing Pupils' Progress (APP).

Continuing her work on progress and assessment, and focusing on independent thinking in a cross-curricular art and maths lesson, Jackie Nicholls from Dickens Heath Primary School in Solihull, gathers some insightful evidence when she challenges her pupils to real-life maths tasks outside the classroom.

Donna Wright and Louise Burnett, Jackie's APP mentors, review her assessments and discover that one of her pupils is exceeding her initial expectations.

Note that current advice is that schools should apply APP to all their pupils, rather than the small-group benchmark approach shown here, capturing and identifying smaller amounts of evidence without using portfolios.

Part of the series: APP - How Does It Work?
