Primary foundation subject assessment - Please help!

Discussion in 'Assessment' started by jemimapuddle-duck, Jan 4, 2012.

  1. Please can anyone share any ideas which really work.

    Have used foundation subject assessment weeks before which are planned by subject leaders for all classes and result in an 'assessment task' which is added to portfolio and subject leaders assess sample for progression / standards. Doesn't work because stands outside curriculum and takes up too much time.

    Suggested taking samples regularly from work done during existing topics in class and adding to a class portfolio with skills in subjects assessed per class but firmly rejected by SLT as an idea which has been used before and didn't work because people didn't bother and work samples too random to make comparisons.

    Really stuck! What else do people do which really works? Thanks :)

  3. APP? I know it's both loved and loathed in equal measure, but if it does work for you it gives a national benchmark - and storing evidence against achievements means you can easily justify why decisions have been made.
