  3. How does the school assess?
    How do you know the assesments are accurate?
    What are the assessments telling you? (About individuals and "groups")
    What is the school doing about what the assessments tell you?
    What is the impact of what you are doing?
    The following is from Ofsted guidance to inspectors (Which may soon change under the new arrangements, but the gist of it will remain):
    • Do pupils have targets and do they understand what they mean/what to do to achieve them? When looking across the broader range of evidence, not just lesson observations, but also by talking to pupils, scrutinising their work, talking to staff (and parents), scrutinising the school’s records of pupils’ current learning and progress and looking at evidence of past progress, for example through contextual value added data for the past three years, inspectors may find the following prompts helpful. Again, it is important that inspectors consider the impact of teaching and the use of assessment in relation to different groups of pupils and individuals as well as the class as a whole.
