assessment of ability for new entries

Discussion in 'Special educational needs' started by amethyst-mirror, Jul 5, 2012.

  1. Hello Everyone!
    Hoping someone can advise or give help. I work in a specialist residential independant school on a farm for sexually abused young people in care. I've been tasked with forming a system of assessing the abilities and educational needs of the young people when they are referred to us with particular reference to their maths and english. We tried using past SATS papers but with mixed success. Considering CATS tests but open to advice or other suggestions. Just need something to give us a baseline assessment when they are referred to us from Social Services as we invariably get *** all from Social or previous establishments.
    Thanks in advance for any guidance!

  3. CATs sound good - or you could try ALAN tests? Although I think they are a bot more 'final' you might be able to adapt something from them
