I am having a big debate at the moment with my assessment co-ordinator about APP maths for year 1 (level 1) for children in my class. I was just wondering what others do?... 1. I think the expectation of level 1 being numbers working to 10 is ridiculous! that is a reception expectation. Our co-ordinator says that thats what it is and we are setting targets too high. I agree that it's the skills and processes they need to learn but as far as number knowledge, i think they need to know and work with higher numbers throughout their time in year 1 (to show progression) (level 2 is numbers to 100). What do you think/do? 2. There isn't any scope for differentiation within the APP grids and especially the number section, it is too 'woolly' and not detailed enough. Does anyone agree? 3. What do you use and how do you use it to assess for maths? (i've already looked at the wigan LEA stuff) PLEASE HELP - I want to do my best for the children and I don't mind putting the work in to devise something but don't want to waste my time!
