Measure progress in RE lessons with this range of assessments, written tasks and practice questions

Regular assessment helps you to find out what students have learnt and how well they can express their knowledge. From checking end-of-topic understanding to exam technique, we have selected a range of resources to support you in identifying pupils’ progress.

KS3 resources

Find out how much your Year 7 class already know about the six main world religions with this adaptable baseline assessment, complete with answers. Or, why not challenge older KS3 students to provide a written answer to this prejudice and discrimination assessment task, which gives them an opportunity to discuss Martin Luther King and Malcolm X? 

This Holocaust project culminates in an assessment in which learners have to design and justify a memorial they have created by explaining its significance in a persuasive writing exercise. To cover a range of topics, check out this collection of 1-hour assessments, including mark schemes and feedback sheets.

Judaism: Holocaust Assessment (Memorial Project)

KS3 RE Assessment.
Three or four lesson assessment task. I use this as the culmination of a Year 8 SOW on the holocaust entitled 'Faith and Suffering'.

The lesson could be adapted for use in History SOWs.

Lesson one:
You require the PPT slideshow, the memorial stations (preferably printed onto A3 and laminated) and the ideas board.
I encourage students to write on the stations sheets using board pens so they can be rubbed off and re-used.
The ideas board can be set as a homework.

Lesson Two (possibly with an additional lesson):
Students working in pairs to complete the A3 proposal blueprint for their own memorial design.

Lesson Three:
Students to write a letter to the local council to ask permission to erect their memorial. This is individual work to be levelled alongside the pair work.

KS4 and post-16 resources

It’s never too early to start familiarising students with exam questions. Ranging from definitions to exploring each side of an argument, these practice questions on Christianity are ideal for testing knowledge and written skills. This Buddhist belief end-of-topic test is a great way of giving pupils formal exam practice and includes a model answer.

Similarly, this written assessment on peace and conflict will provide a clear idea of how pupils are progressing along with tips for answering exam questions.  Finally, make sure your students fully understand the keywords that will be using with this definition test.
