It is used to:

  • Diagnose strengths and weaknesses in students’ work
  • Measure attainment against targets to assist in supporting or improving progress
  • Provide up-to-date information for students, teachers and parents
  • Inform development of teaching and programmes of study

The regular assessment of students’ work is an integral part of teaching and learning at Rossett.   It is used to:

  • Diagnose strengths and weaknesses.
  • Measure attainment against targets to assist in supporting or improving progress.
  • Provide up-to-date information for students, teachers and parents.
  • Inform development of teaching and programmes of study.

Assessment Policy:

  • Continuous peer and self assessments are carried out on a lesson by lesson basis.  In addition to this the vast majority of teacher assessment should be formative, focussing on what students need to do in order to improve, rather than the mark/grade they attain. (See Marking Policy.)

Every Day Assessment

On a day to day basis students’ knowledge and understanding will continue to be assessed in a variety of ways, the main purpose being to help the students learn and make progress. They will now receive feedback, on any assessed work, indicating the level of skill or content using the following:

  • Excellence (9-8)
  • Secure (7-6)
  • Developing (5-4)
  • Foundation (3-1)

3Rs Learning Cycles:

  • There are at least three learning cycles throughout the school year for all year groups.
  • Following each learning cycle grade reports are prepared and issued to parents.
  • The student tracker contains all information relevant to each student’s own academic profile. It allows for the tracking of all students on an individual, class and subject basis, so that progress and achievement can be monitored in all key stages.
  • Areas of underachievement can then be identified and receive rigorous intervention, with areas of high achievement being recognised and praised.
