Current changes to the assessment requirements at a national level in England, means that the level of concern in schools about assessment has never been greater.
THE COURSE WILL:
• explore summative assessment requirements for science at end of KS1 and KS2 using ‘interim teacher assessment frameworks’ to judge subject security
• help you to develop assessment without levels in your own school context, through curriculum planning, with assessment in mind
• share practical formative and summative in-school assessment strategies that assess progress, support attainment and identify next steps towards subject security.
