Can anyone please shed some light on how English will be graded this year? As in - we know we do teacher assessment. but - 1) how will they get an overall English grade for the purposes of RAISE online? 2) how will we establish mini levels if we are only being told to mark as whole levels? 3) how will we get an overall combined maths/English grade if no one knows what's happening in point 1 ? No one in our LA seems to know (Essex) and it's getting pretty late in the day!! Especially given that the govt can't ask us for a raw score to feed in, all they are allowed to ask for is the level. So I could be saying level 4 - but they'll have no idea if that child is a 4c or a 4a - so actually for the kids that are in the 'a' band of their levels they could get the short straw? All seems to be a bit made up and poorly thought through - but I'm willing to listen to anyone who has got any better knowledge of what's happening!!
