NC Levels

Discussion in 'Modern foreign languages' started by timboleicester123, Dec 20, 2011.

  1. What have we been saying?


    We have concerns about the ways in which level descriptors are currently used to judge pupil progress. Indeed, we believe that this may actually inhibit the overall performance of our system and undermine learning. For this reason, we suggest a new approach to judging progression that we believe to be, in principle, more educationally sound. We are aware that this has significant implications for assessment and accountability.

    Did they go on to suggest what the new way of judging progress might be? I have read that we may be moving towards the idea of whole groups of students needing to reach a certain level. Could this mean that if you don't reach the level, you don't move on up? A move towards French-style year repeats??
