APP - what is it?

Discussion in 'Modern foreign languages' started by Petite Joueuse, Jul 2, 2010.

  1. I've been told that "APP should be embedded" in my Year 8 SOWs for September.

    Could someone please explain to me (in simple terms) what this means in practice?
    merci, PJ
     
  2. Dunno. "App" to me = "application", i.e. a computer program or iPhone app.

  3. If only it were so simple - I could easily embed apps in mySOWs!! Do it all the time.
    No, it is something to do with "assessing pupil progress", but, eh, excuse me, don't we do that already??

    From what I hear, APP is something that will be scrapped by the new government

    I believe it was originally introduced as a way of tracking student progress in core subjects which had previously been monitored via externally marked KS3 SATs. It seems to consist of printing off lots of nice sheets you can highlight as you go along...
    Not done in MFL in anywhere I know of... (because we already do it!)

  8. Isn't it something that you do behind a tree ?
     
  9. Has anybody heard anything about APPs recently ? I thought it had been scrapped but this morning our SMT has told us to start using it (and we have a grid produced by QCDA). Could anybody please point me in the right direction to find the correct information ? Thank you.

    Can anyone enlighten me also if this needs to be implmented. I thought it was not going ahead for Foundation Subjects and am in the middle of working on it.
     
  11. I have some level ladders which might be helpful but am not aware of any APP as such being compulsory. Let me know if you want to look at them to save you work.
