Assessment for pupils working below national standard

Course Overview

During this session I will discuss the current assessment arrangements for children working below national expected standard.

I will spend some time looking at the importance of formative assessment for this group of pupils. This year teacher assessment arrangements were interim and so I will discuss what I think schools will need to be preparing for next year. I will also be looking at the future of P scales.
