Question on example KS1 SPAG

    Please can someone help? I've done this test with some of my Y3 kids and marked it because I need to put some data in. SPAG is standalone on our system. I'm not sure how the mark relates to emerging, expected and exceeding. Can anyone help?

    We don't know until the conversion tables come out on the 3rd June for KS1.
    KS2 won't know till 5th July.

    thanks :)
    was just hoping someone had an idea how to use them for in house assessment. it's a nightmare.

    15 out of 20 as a rough guide. As for assigning that to emerging, expected, exceeding, it's impossible because those terms are nonsense.

    Just look at the general writing your class do.
    Those who are good at the technical bits of writing, give them exceeding.
    Those who are as you'd normally expect, give them expected.
    Those who can barely string a sentence together, give them emerging.

    If you really want a test, then there are some good year 3 SPAG ones on here and on T winkl

    i know, and i would. but this data for everything needs to be done for monday, which wasn't evident until thursday, and i hadn't even done the test then... or finished marking the maths or reading!
    was trying to get a shortcut which didn't exist. at least i know what they didn't know in the test... apart from that i feel awful for making them sit something that made little difference to anything. am fed up :(

    We are informed that 85% of children are expected to "pass"
    so work out 85% of your class and see what they got.
    What a pigging mess this is

    i've given up with it.
    possibly permanently.
    it's saturday night.

    make it up.
    Bright ones, exceeding; average ones, expected; clueless ones, emerging
