Subject is mod langs. We are in the process of redesigning what was an already perfectly good s1-s3 course with new courses, assessments and of course along with assessments come success criteria. Obviously, we are continuously assessing pupils both formatively and summatively (classwork, vocabulary tests, projects, presentations etc) and we have designed a 'pupil profile' to show how individual pupils have achieved certain outcomes. This is a lot of paperwork and very time consuming to do for each individual pupil - how are others recording and evidencing progress through the outcomes? Also, I am in the middle of creating writing/speaking assessments and want to produce Success Criteria so that a) pupils know how to achieve a certain level and b) so that teachers across the dept are being consistent i.e my level 3S is the same as the teacher next door. I would probably like to do the success criteria in the following manner - To achieve a level 3 Secure in this test you will have to; answer at least 8 questions, present yourself confidently, have good pronunciation, make yourself clearly understood, use linking words and express opinions (etc etc). However, my PTC thinks this is too prescriptive and we should be producing something more along the lines of a 'level 3 test' with pass or fail and individual teachers can then use class performance to decide whether pupils are D/C/S. My problem with this is it limits pupils to only being able to achieve a certain level, and that there is still no consistency. If we do not have clear success criteria and share these with pupils how do they know what is expected of them? The main point of this post is really to find out what others are doing. I would essentially be 'making up' criteria, as there has been nothing officially released, I would have to try to extract them from the E's and O's for the different levels.
