Geography KS3 Baseline Assessment Test and Mark Scheme for Year 7

Geography KS3 Baseline Assessment Test and Mark Scheme for Year 7

A rigorous, and fully editable Geography baseline assessment test. Designed to assess the subject content in the new 2014 National Curriculum: • Locational knowledge • Place knowledge • Human processes • Physical processes • Geographical skills • Fieldwork Full preview copy available at: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/geography-ks3-baseline-assessment-test-full-preview-copy-11324801 This baseline assessment allows Geography teachers to gain an in-depth understanding of pupils' strengths and weaknesses in this subject by assessing the six 'strands' above. Marking is easy and straight-forward. Each section in the baseline assessment yields a 'Step' or Level once marked. There is the option of converting the 6 'Steps' or Levels into one overall National Curriculum Level (an Excel file with this formula is included). Alternatively, the results can be used with a KS3 Assessment Grid (included) to start to build a detailed pupil profile for each student. The baseline assessment can also be tweaked to give a numerical score, e.g. out of 100. A high-quality resource from a current Head of Department and GCSE examiner This baseline assessment has been piloted, fine-tuned, and then fully implemented across three different schools, resulting in a high-quality resource that can be used 'as is' or tailored to your needs. A mark scheme is included to provide further guidance, which could be particularly useful for non-specialist teachers. Order a copy now and get your department ready for your new cohort of Year 7 pupils. Why is a baseline assessment important in Geography? • In all schools, including selective schools, there will be a range of abilities entering Year 7. • Pupils have vastly different experiences of Geography at KS1 and KS2. • KS2 and CAT test scores, while a useful indicator of general ability, are not specific to Geography and do not show pupils' strengths and weaknesses in Geography. • Baseline data is a useful tool to help departments review their curriculum provision at KS3 and to track individual pupil progress Please have a look at my other resources or visit GeographyBurp.co.uk for more free resources.
