Assessing Science

Discussion in 'Primary' started by Vittoriamoon, Jan 1, 2011.

  1. We have started using APP to assess Sc1 and it works well. It very clearly highlights the gaps and helps you plan next steps for the children. We also combine it with Rising Stars knowledge tests for each QCA unit so we have levels for knowledge and investigative skills. Early days yet but I find both very quick and simple to complete. The emphasis on application of science (AF2) also makes you think carefully about the context of science investigations.
     
  2. Thanks for your input everyone! I've heard of the rising stars before is it a scheme? Does it cover all year groups? We have exploring science but only for KS2 so need something for KS1.
