Pupil friendly checks to measure progress and depth of learning for Years 1, 3, 4 and 5.
Each year’s assessments are age-appropriate. Not only do they follow that year’s National Curriculum objectives, but give your teachers a pupil-friendly way to check depth of learning and gently prepare pupils for examination conditions.
Strands within reading, writing and maths are assessed together, helping teachers easily identify where learning has stuck and where extra help might be required. These are clearly laid out in the marking scheme, so your teachers don’t have to work hard to quickly identify these areas.
Analysis gained from these summative assessments is perfect for giving feedback to parents, or for handing on to the receiving teacher. Alternatively, because the checks are so easy to run, you can assess each pupil at the beginning of the next year, to help plan strategies for the coming academic year.
Teachers will find the assessments simple – with a Teacher’s Booklet for each year that provides a no-fuss marking scheme and advice on analysing results.
What’s in the Complete Set?
The Complete Set includes photocopiable Master packs for Years 1, 3, 4 and 5.
While the content of each year alters to meet the requirements of the National Curriculum, each year’s Master pack includes photocopiable assessments for maths, reading and writing, plus a Teacher’s Manual.
Within the different subjects, the assessments themselves are broken up in to a series of tasks, the majority of which are to be done under test conditions. However, the Annual Primary Assessments also contain elements that can be carried out in class time. An example of this is the review of reading that each child will be asked to complete.
This has the benefit of helping the school track strands that are usually assessed by teachers, as well as the other strands that are assessed through formal, summative checks.
Each Teacher’s Booklet contains:
- Advice on administering the assessment
- A mark scheme
- Record sheets (both absolute and comparative)
- Advice about interpreting the results
Assessment expert, Sue Hackman has developed these primary assessments to ensure that they are clear, precise and easy to administer and mark.
