           APP and Reading
Primary Timeline For Implementation of AFL/APP
Reconceptualising assessment
                 APP leads to:
• improved understanding of National Curriculum
• confident and accurate assessments;
• wider range of evidence across the full breadth of
  the curriculum;
• more ownership of responsibility for standards
  and pupils’ progress among teachers;
• integration of assessment with planning for
  teaching and learning.
         How does APP support AFL?

•   Develops understanding of progression
•   Supports planning for learning
•   Identifies next steps in pupils’ learning
•   Informs curricular targets
•   Supports targeted intervention
APP Self-evaluation tool

• Procedure undertaken by teachers and
  moderators at the start of an assessment
  round to ensure that all those making APP
   – understand and are familiar with the relevant
     AFs and the APP criteria
   – interpret and apply the criteria in line with the
     national standard
  This is a procedure undertaken, in school and externally,
  after APP assessments have been made to review the
  accuracy and consistency of a sample of the judgements
  made and:
  Confirm that teachers’/school’s judgements are accurate,
  consistent and in line with the national standard
  Where this is not possible, recommend changes to the
  judgements to bring them in line with the national
      Standardisation or moderation?

• Ensures that the APP criteria are understood
  and can be applied consistently
• Gives teachers confidence that they assess
  to the national standard
• Identifies any differences in interpretations of
  the criteria
• Enables teachers to adjust their interpretation
  of criteria where necessary
   Essential features of standardisation

Based around the standards files or the
  training files:
• Read the standardisation files independently
• Make and record both AF and overall level
  judgements of the material independently
• Articulate reasons for judgement and discuss
• Compare judgements of the materials with
  national standards

Gathering Evidence for Reading
            APP materials for KS1
• A coherent approach through key stages 1-3
• Principles and practices consistent with EYFSP
• Standards files show a range of evidence
    – applications of literacy work
    – what children say and do as well as record
    – development over time
    – teachers talking about significant moments
    – notes of significant moments

Using the evidence to
 make judgements:
       KS1 Standards files for writing
  How might you use these in school to
 develop a shared understanding of what
independence, choice and creativity mean
             in Y1 and Y2 ?
  –   thinking independently
  –   applying learning in a new context
  –   making decisions
  –   developing own ideas
  –   working together in pairs and groups
