I am in the pocess of picking brains to try and determine which of the 2 SATS Writing (2012) options to take, i.e. 1. Internally marked test available from Feb-June with a reported Teacher Assessment level and the chance of external moderation ... or ... 2. Externally marked test in May (i.e. SATS as we know and love them). I appreciate that the "internal" option will give a broader view of a child's ability across a range of genre and timescales ... but the existing option is more cast iron in terms of quality (?discuss?). What is your school going for ... internal or external?
