  1. Do students in your school have one target level across all subjects? or do they have individual levels for each subject?
    Any pros or cons for either method?

    When I worked in the UK the target levels were a very serious matter. The Fisher Family Trust generated predicted levels and the reported student progress when compared with the FFT predictions were, in some schools, the measure of a teacher. I have seen teacher performance reduced to a spreadsheet exercise. The HODs were happy so long as the spreadsheets showed progress towards the predicted levels. Students falling below the predicted levels was not allowed. Teacher performance reviews were predominantly spent looking at spreadsheet graphs.
    I have never worked in a school which gave one target level across all subjects. I dont see how that is even logical.
