Deputy Headteacher, Shaun Allison, at Durrington High School, talks here about how staff used an ‘Assessment Innovation Fund’ to develop a method of ‘assessing without levels’ in KS3.
More info here:
The Government’s expert adviser on behaviour, Charlie Taylor, has produced a checklist on the basics of classroom management. Teachers can use it to develop between five and ten essential actions to promote good behaviour in students.
The checklist follows Charlie's recent summit, where headteachers of outstanding schools discussed their views on the key principles for improving behaviour.
You can download Charlie’s checklist and examples of how some schools have adapted it for their own practice here.
We wanted to take control and devise an assessment tool that enabled us to report progress in a meaningful way. We were also very clear that whatever assessment tool we devised, it needed to be robust and track pupils’ progress across the school and not just at the end of a Key Stage.
An 8 round Christmas quiz<br />

Round 4 – Christmas Dingbats<br />

Its all on the powerpoint - don't show the pupils the adverts (you will need access to youtube); I have added a little comment about how long to play each one because some do say the companies name !<br />
Intended to be printed and laminated for a wall display on literary devices. Uses examples from a lot of modern films (lots of Harry Potter!) to make explanations clear and relevant to pupils.
I hope it comes in handy.
RECENTLY UPDATED (Dec 2015) - New look, overview sheet has been added, better protection, objectives edited. <br />
Assessment spreadsheets and tracking resources I've created using a 7-point system. Enter numbers 1-7 (which is explained in the introduction) into spreadsheet for learning objectives which will then calculate averages and a progress 'level' for the accompanying tracking sheets. The newly added overview sheet is a great addition which gives you an instant understanding of the current level of your children in maths, reading, writing and science. Who needs classroom monitor and the ongoing cost? This system, plus my foundation subjects tracking system (see link below), will be all your school needs for tracking progress in this 'interesting' era of assessment without levels. Please, leave feedback for this amazing resource!<br />
NOW ADDED: Foundation Subject Assessment and Tracking without Levels:<br />
