Controlled assessment vs. PPA/NQT time

Discussion in 'Modern foreign languages' started by tmahmoud, Dec 12, 2011.

  1. This week I am running controlled oral assessments with my French class. It will take me 7 non-teaching periods for the 1 class I have in Y11. Now, I realise that the A in PPA stands for assessment but I am wondering whether this is actually an acceptable use of my PPA/NQT time according to the Nat P&C. Any comments?

    To me, it means "marking" and nothing else, which you cannot do effectively if you are supervising pupils at the same time, as your concentration should be on the work you are marking. Running controlled oral assessments is not marking.
