7 Assessment and Reporting Arrangements KS1 2015 ARA for link on Bradford Schools Online in the KS1 assessment area or at -https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/key-stage-1-assessment-and-reporting-arrangements-araIt sets out the statutory responsibilities of those involved in assessment and reporting for KS1.Teacher assessment is the main focus for end of KS1 assessment and reporting, and is carried out as part of teaching and learning – based on knowledge of how a child has performed over time and across a range of contexts.
8 What do teachers have to assess ? At the end of KS1, teachers have to summarisetheir judgement for each eligible child and determine :a level for reading, writing, speaking and listeningA level for each attainment target in mathsa level for each attainment target in sciencePupils working towards level 1 of the national curriculum who do not have a special educational need should be reported as ‘W’ (working below the level)P scales should be reported for children with special educational needs who are working below L1 – P scales are not to be used to assess children with English as an additional language unless they have additional special educational needsThe code ‘NOTSEN’ should be used to explain why a pupil working toward level 1 doesn’t have P scales reported
9 Tasks and testsTeachers MUST administer the tests to help make a secure judgement for their final teacher assessment at the end of KS1.As a minimum, they must administer tests in reading, writing and maths for each pupil.The tests make up 1 piece of evidence for your overall teacher assessment.This is the final year that schools will use the 2007 and 2009 versions of the tests – these will be delivered to schools in the week commencing 2nd February, 2015 and may be opened when they arrive.Pupils must take the tests if they have completed the programme of study of KS1 and are considered to be working at level 1 or above.
10 Pupils who are working below level 1 or who are unable to participate in the tests using suitable access arrangements should not take the tests – make a teacher assessment based on the work they complete in class throughout the year.If teacher assessment and task and test results differ, the teacher assessment results should be reported.
11 Teacher assessment It is strongly recommended that teachers use formative assessment materials to supportassessment of reading, writing and mathematics –Regularly review the full range of evidence (written (independent), spoken and observed) for each assessment focusAn assessment focus should only be highlighted if the teacher feels the pupil has demonstrated secure understanding in a range of contextsTeachers select the appropriate ‘level boundary’ and arrive at judgementsUndertake in-school and across LAP moderation with colleagues

13 Reporting and using results Schools must report end of KS1 results to the LA by the end of the summer term. For all pupils you must include:- a teacher assessment level in reading, writing and speaking and listening- a separate teacher assessment level for each science attainment target- an overall teacher assessment level in mathematics and scienceIf a pupil starts at a school before the summer half-term, the child’s new school is responsible for reporting that child’s results.The window for reporting results of teacher assessment will be towards the end of June – check Bradford Schools Online for details in the Spring term.Outcomes are loaded into RAISEonline during the autumn term.

15 KS1 moderation – an overview Next 23 slides 30 mins
16 KS1 moderation“…(to) confirm whether a school’s key stage 1 teacher assessment is consistent with national standards, and if not, how the school should change it.”Statutory obligation to moderate KS1 assessment judgements in 25% schools each year – this also includes moderation of schools where Area Achievement Officers have concerns about standards and accuracy of assessment in KS1Priority 1 schools, schools with entirely new Y2 teams and Y2 NQTs are also moderateschools are to be moderated they cannot report assessment results to the LA until after the moderator’s visitReciprocal appeals process is in place with Education Leeds
17 Schools will be informed that they are going to be moderated within the last week of Spring term and are invited to send Y2 teachers to a moderation meeting to meet with moderator and complete planning form for in-school moderation visitWriting will be moderated at this meetingA date will be made for the school visit where reading and maths will be moderated
18 Moderators will use the national level descriptors and revised assessment criteria for writing when moderating in schools - on BSO in KS1 area
19 Evidence will consist of: examples of pupils’ workany records that teachers might keep, e.g. from statutory tasks and teststeacher’s knowledge of the pupil.

As opposed to what does an array look like for 2 x 4? Or write 4 +4 a different way.Or Activity: 8,12, 4 on board. Tell me what you know about these numbers. As opposed to what are the next 2 terms in this sequence?Open approach (ideas from closed, closed open).Video?
38 Starter activity2 weeks after teaching check understanding e.g. sequencing numbersWhat would you expect of level 1 children?2c children?2b children?2a children?Level 3 children?What could you ask? Discuss

40 Low level 2 - sequencesRecognise numbers in the 2s, 5s, 10s sequences
41 Securing level 2 - sequencing 2s in the odd number sequence. Predicting if other number are in the sequence.Sequence of 5s but not multiples of 5. Explain how you did it.Source: securing level 2
42 Sequencing – what would a question look like? 22, 24, 26, _ ,_Source: Testbase KS1 SAT Sub-levelled question level 2a. Note the extra difficulty that the layout presents. Unlike the typical sequencing question of fill in the next two numbers…This puts a ceiling on the children’s learning and assessment of their learning.

51 Group moderation Share reading and maths practice Moderate writing with colleagues from school, colleagues from other schools and moderators – use the revised assessment criteria (on tables) and the standards files (on BSO – use laptops)
