MODERATION OF ENGLISH IN KEY STAGE 2
DateTue, 17th May, 2016
Time9:30 am - 3:30 pm
LocationLionwood Junior School, Norwich
The shift away from a ‘best fit’ model of assessment to ‘can do’ thresholds has introduced a new way of evaluating success, but there is little support for the assessment of non-test years and a vacuum of management information in all years.
This course offers practical advice about conducting moderations across years and between teachers and schools, including sample moderation activities. It will be of particular interest to English subject leaders, assessment leaders and KS2 phase leaders.
