Assessing Pupils' Progress (APP) in English at Key Stage 3: Blank assessment grids for speaking and listening

Assessment grids containing the assessment focuses (AFs) and criteria for speaking and listening, levels 1 to 8:

Teachers familiar with the assessment guideline sheets for reading and writing will notice that the assessment guideline sheets for speaking and listening cover three rather than two levels. This has been done for the following reasons:

  • in speaking and listening, pupils' achievement is more likely to spread over three rather than two levels
  • APP Speaking and listening has fewer assessment focuses and less dense criteria than reading and writing and this is exploited in the guideline sheets.
