Assessment Points KS3
Assessment point reports are published twice during the course of the academic year. The timings of these reports and the evidence used to identify the grades for each year group are detailed in Table 1 below.
At each assessment point, teachers provide both a current and a predicted grade. These are both fine graded to provide further detail on how comfortably they sit at that grade. The current grade is based on the level a student has worked at, since the previous assessment point. The predicted grade reflects the grade they are expected to achieve at the end of Year 11.
Students will also receive an ‘on track indicator’ for each subject with each assessment report. The predicted fine attainment grade is compared to the end of KS4 target grade and if it is below, the on-track indicator will be T-. If it is the same it will be T and if it is above it will be T+. This allows parents/carers and the school to identify very quickly where a student’s areas of weakness are and enables the swift implementation of any necessary intervention.
