Download Publication PDF file - 918 KB
This is the first of four units looking at Assessment for Learning (AfL) practice in science. Unit 1 looks at how to support structured learning through the use of learning objectives, learning outcomes and success criteria. There is a progression grid to support self-evaluation of current practice and suggested activities to help move practice on.
The unit contains:
- reference to the AfL quality standards
- purpose of the materials
- key messages
- an opportunity to consider current practice of teachers and actions of pupils through using the progression table
- suggested activities to move practice on from each step to the next
- documents to support identified activities.
This publication builds on the whole-school AfL materials and the Assessment for Learning 8 schools project. It also gives guidance on how developments in these areas can support effective implementation of Assessing Pupils' Progress (APP) in science.
