KS3 DRAMA ASSESSMENT POSTERS - Evaluation

KS3 DRAMA ASSESSMENT POSTERS - Evaluation

Being not part of the National Curriculum, drama does not have it's own mark scheme at KS3. I created my own assessment scheme, the levels linked to the English NC levels. These assessment levels have been used in every school in which I have worked and the schools have adopted my system as it has proven to be very successful; both easy to use and accurate. I separated my drama assessments into three areas; 1. CO-OPERATION & IDEAS 2. PERFORMANCE 3. EVALUATION This resource is the third section; Evaluation and includes a teacher mark scheme along with poster sized assessment levels for display so that the students can also understand their level and how to get up to the next level. The levels; over a level 5 also begin to correlate with the GCSE assessment criteria.

YEAR 9 DRAMA SCHEME - Anne Frank's Diary 2
