    Hello all!

    Our school is still using QCA end of topic test for science but I'm teaching from NC2014 so what is out there to replace the QCA assessments?

    Any help is appreciated.

    (Re-posted from the other thread about assessment but it makes sense to reply directly to you) Something that may help is the Teacher Assessment in Primary Science (TAPS) project materials, from Bath Spa University. The website is here: http://www.bathspa.ac.uk/schools/ed...cts/cresl-teacher-assessment-in-primary-years

    And an interactive online version of their main output, the assessment pyramid, is here http://www.pstt.org.uk/SiteDocuments/doc/taps/taps-pyramid-final.pdf

    The online PDF also includes lots of exemplification material to show what each assessment 'option' in the pyramid could look like in the classroom.

    If you go to lancsngfl they have assessment criteria for science teacher assessment.
    Go to the publications section through professional development. We use test base to make our own summative assessments.
