Article:- Focus on assessment in Key Stage 2

£1.49

With no specific guidelines on assessment, how should we be assessing pupil progress at Key Stage 2? There are plenty of options. Since September 2014, the National Curriculum requires pupils and teachers to focus on making “substantial progress in at least one modern or ancient foreign language”. Government advice on KS2 assessment is open – pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the matters, skills and processes specified in the relevant programme of study and schools are invited to use their own system to demonstrate how well learners have achieved this. ALL members are of course professionally concerned about comparability and consistency in their judgements.
