    There used to be guidelines which showed which areas/statements needed to be achieved to support an assessment of 'low' and 'secure' , and then so long as the child was working towards something in the next level up, they could be said to be 'high'. But I have no idea where those guidelines are now that the National Strategies site has had everything to do with APP archived.

    We say "best fit", so personally, if this child has nothing from level 5, I would say they are a 4b. They'd have to be showing some level 5 elements to be a 4a.
    The sublevels were never given to us though, were they? Someone just took them out of the different levels and now we have to spend hours figuring out whether a child is an a or a b. It drives me mad sometimes!
  3. If you put 'Making a level judgement in writing' into Google it will give you link to the document you need, as there is a specific criteria to use for writing.

    I always think they need to have everything from a level to be able to get the next one up. Then a few of the next one up gives them c, approx half gives them b and almost all or all gives them a.
