Free Sample of Education Guru's Progression & Assessment Tracker KS2 Knowledge

Free Sample of Education Guru's Progression & Assessment Tracker KS2 Knowledge

If you want to see what Education Guru's progression & Assessment Tracker for knowledge looks like before you buy it, then this free resource should give you a taster. Have a go at filling in some of your children's data to see how the grid number crunches the data. It also shows you how the NC objectives for Science fit into the statutory Teacher Assessments for Science which are in bold at the start of each grid. This makes it easy for the Year 2 and Year 6 teachers report on each child's progress. This assessment tool also allows you to identify which objectives need more work through the columns at the bottom of each table, as it reports on how many children have achieved the objective and how many need some more input. As the grid passes up with the cohort it allows the next teacher to identify which areas need more work and allows them to identify where an individual may need more support. The example shows just one biology teacher assessment for Key stage 2 . The full resource for Knowledge is spilt into Key stage 1 or Key stage 2 pack or they can be bought as a bundle. There is also a tracking system for the Working Scientifically Teacher Assessments which follows the same format. When you purchase the Tracking systems the full instructions are included.
