- A simple, effective way of assessing pupil progress at Year 7
- What is it? - If pupils are going to get to grips with the concept of assessing their own progress, then it is important to start them early. The language of APP is difficult enough for teachers to understand, let along little Year 7 students, but these wonderful sets of stickers make life nice and easy. They are assessment targets for levels 3-4, 4-5 and 5-6 divided up into the topics of Number, Statistics, Algebra and Geometry. Students are given sets of simple, levelled statements and asked to tick each one when they feel they have achieved it. This will form a comprehensive record of their progress throughout the year and should help identify any gaps in their knowledge.
- How could it be used? - One of the major issues surrounding APP is providing evidence of pupil progress. “How do you know Britney is working at level 4 in Shape?” asks the nice Ofsted inspector. With that in mind it might be a nice idea to have a separate file for each student with these stickers stuck in the front. Each time a student ticks a statement, the corresponding work relating to that statement could be placed into the file as evidence. It sounds like a lot of work - and it is! - but surely Ofsted will be absolutely loving it, and it would be a great thing to show particularly keen parents at Parents Evening.
