2016 Assessment in more detail DfE document: www.gov.uk/government/consultations/new-national- curriculum-primary-assessment-and-accountabilitywww.gov.uk/government/consultations/new-national- curriculum-primary-assessment-and-accountability Reception baseline assessment from Sept 2016 (or 2015) - schools can choose a commercially provided assessment – or choose not to use one at all! EYFS Profile no longer statutory KS1 still teacher assessment informed by tests (externally set but internally marked) KS2 tests for reading, maths, grammar. Teacher assessment for writing and science. Progress (2023) measured from Reception to KS2 for an all-through primary – not from KS1 (except for a Junior school!) From 2023, if you haven’t administered Reception baseline (2016) you will only have attainment data (2022, progress from either Reception or KS1, whichever is better.) Floor standard – you will be above floor if either pupils make “sufficient progress” (whatever that is) in all 3 of reading, writing and maths or 85% meet the expected attainment standard (based on standardised score) Writing will be a teacher assessment – therefore we need some ‘performance descriptors’ (like levels?) which will be produced for Years 2 and 6.
What do we believe about good practice assessment? Assessment = an evaluation of what children have learnt at a given point in time Assessment = an ongoing process which is integral to teaching and learning
