What do the letters APP stand for?

    I can see lots of topics and resources around the place on APP for AFL and I know AFL is "Assessment for Learning" but after numerous attempts, I've looked at lists of objectives and levels and criteria 'til I'm blue in the face, hoping to put some meaningful words to the initials with no joy. Nowhere can I actually see what the letters APP actually stand for?

    Anyone help me out here?

    Isn't that what we used to call marking and writing reports ;)

    Good thing I'm doing this teaching returners course next year, isn't it! Hope they dish out an acronym dictionary.

    If there's a jargon directory anywhere here abouts, a link would be appreciated!

    There's this website called google that's good for questions like this. Go to www.google.co.uk, and type 'what does APP mean in education'
    You'll get the answer, it means;
    Absolutely Pointless Procedure

    Well funnily enough, I did try Google, and funnily enough... it didn't give me an answer!

    It did give me a list of 133 possible interpretations of the acronym APP though :


    I rather think I like "Arctic Pilot Project" :D

    Why not ask the KS3 Coordinator in your department, they should know and it is their job to know! :)

    I'm not in a department at the moment, I'm doing a returner's course in the New Year, trying to be a girly swot and get some things covered before I start.

  8. Just put CR in front and lose the last P - then you have it!

    You may be lucky and end up in a school like mine that doesn't do it!

    APP is on the way out if indeed it hasn't already left the building.
  11. EVNSHITR is no doubt replacing it if that is possible
