How much progress should my child make? What if my child is not achieving? What if my child is over-achieving? What is CEM? What is MidYIS? What is a Target Grade? Is all work by students Levelled? How are assessments used (to support student learning)? When are assessments given to students?

How are students tracked? Why is there sometimes a big difference in report grades between some subjects? Do end of year report grades affect the following years classes (sets)? What do KS3 Levels tell me about how my child will do in KS4? Term 3 Assessments Annual EXAMS for English, Maths, Science in Year 9 only. Experience with formal exams

Term 3 in the past: Teaching and learning as throughout T1 and T2 Tests in the Conference Centre Term 3 this year: Teaching and learning as throughout T1 and T2 Tests in classrooms Assessments

Key Assessments are scheduled at key points throughout each term including Term 3. (Key Assessments Calendar available online via Firefly.) Throughout each term, there are a number of other, smaller tests and assessments with specific focuses. Throughout each term, all assessments are used as part of the accumulated data which is used to monitor student progress. Assessments FOCUS: student progress/learning: The full range of assessments used by teachers tend to be formative and

they help teachers (and students) understand what needs to be planned for in subsequent lessons. As always, the imperative is always to use assessments to provide timely, detailed feedback to students to support their ongoing learning as they strive to achieve their Target grades and perhaps exceed them. Assessments FOCUS: student progress/learning: The primary function of all assessments is to help teachers and students understand where each student is at in terms of whatever is being assessed.

This data is then used mostly by the teacher to determine what needs to happen next for each student in terms of supporting their learning and progress. Term 3 FOCUS: student progress/learning: Students need to be aware of their report grades: TARGET GRADES and their current Attainment Grades. They need to understand what they could/should be doing to continue to make progress and then they need to be supported in doing so.
