Key Stafe 3 Assessment

In all subject areas Assessment Folders are maintained for each student. These folders assist in providing evidence of progression throughout Key Stage Three. In year 8 pupils partake in Baseline tests which enable staff to see initial pupil level. Continuous assessment takes place throughout the academic year to ensure each pupil is meeting their full potential.

On top of Baseline Tests pupils contribute to Cross Curricular Skill tasks set in place by CCEA

The Cross Curricular skills of Communication, Using Mathematics, and Using Information and Communication Technology are the bedrock skills through which you people access knowledge. This places emphasis on all teachers to ensure the skills are developed across the curriculum and not just in Mathematics, English and ICT. Whilst specific knowledge can be taught in these core subjects, the emphasis is now placed on transferring skills in other curriculum areas. This approach ensures pupils consolidation as well as progression.

 

Communication

Children should be able to communicate in order to express themselves socially, emotionally and physically, to develop as individuals, engage with others and contribute as members of society.

 

Using Mathematics

Using Mathematics is the skill of applying mathematical concepts, processes and understanding appropriately in a variety of contexts.

 

Using ICT

Using ICT provides powerful tools and contexts to support meaningful learning. It has the potential to transform and enrich pupils’ learning experiences and environments across the curriculum.

Assessment

Learning, teaching and assessment should be viewed as a continuous cycle, where assessment plays an integral part in informing teaching and learning and in providing evidence of progress made and outcomes achieved. Staff should assess pupil progression throughout the Levels of Progression tables provided by CCEA. At Key Stage Three Portfolios are submitted to CCEA to award pupils of particular levels in the three Cross Curricular Skills.
