Hi All, I am an assessment co-ordinator and I will be meeting the head of maths soon to discuss how key stage 3 students are assessed. I will be looking for some way of justifying a level awarded to a student. My understanding is that maths sets levels as a result of tests. The result of a test relates directly to a level. This puzzles me. One of the criteria for a level 6 in "Mathematical processes and applications" is "Pupils carry out substantial tasks". How does a test meet this criteria? Any explanation would be welcomed.
