Assessment at Hounslow Town Primary School
Assessment after Levels
‘Pupil progress and achievement should be communicated in terms of descriptive profiles rather than condensed to numerical summaries. This shows a direct move away from the practice of labelling a child with a ‘level’ and does away with the idea of tracking solely in terms of points progress.’
(National Association of Head Teachers Report on Assessment 2015)
This is our method of measuring and showing progress, set targets, plan from and is the language we use with the children, displayed in the classroom and in books.
What is it?
For each Key Concept, we will be assessing the child’s grasp of it. This well help us make a formative judgement of where the child is likely to be at the end of the academic year.
D for a key concept means showing limited concrete signs of comprehension.
A means they are showing understanding of it and beginning to apply it.
R means they can apply it confidently.
E means they are adept in application and use across the board.
