APP in mathematics: Focused assessment materials – Level 8

These resources are based on the Assessing Pupils' Progress (APP) assessment criteria. You can find examples of what pupils should be able to do and probing questions to ask to assess their progress.

The examples illustrate the range and pitch of mathematics at level 8, and you can use the probing questions in lessons to help secure your assessment judgements.

• Numbers and the number system

This resource is part of the focused assessment materials within Assessing Pupils' Progress (APP) in mathematics for level 8. Teachers can find out the assessment criterion, what pupils should be able to do and probing questions to assess their progress in understanding the equivalence between recurring decimals and fractions.

• Calculating

This resource is part of the focused assessment materials within Assessing Pupils' Progress (APP) in mathematics for level 8. Teachers can find out the assessment criteria, what pupils should be able to do and probing questions to assess their progress in areas including proportional changes and powers, roots and numbers.

• Algebra

This resource is part of the focused assessment materials within Assessing Pupils' Progress (APP) in mathematics for level 8. Teachers can find out the assessment criteria, what pupils should be able to do and probing questions to assess their progress in areas including quadratic expressions, complex formulae and inequalities.

• Shape, space and measures

This resource is part of the focused assessment materials within Assessing Pupils' Progress (APP) in mathematics for level 8. Teachers can find out the assessment criteria, what pupils should be able to do and probing questions to assess their progress in areas including congruence, trigonometrical relationships and understanding formulae.

• Handling data

This resource is part of the focused assessment materials within Assessing Pupils' Progress (APP) in mathematics for level 8. Teachers can find out the assessment criteria, what pupils should be able to do and probing questions to assess their progress in areas including data estimates, distributions and using diagrams.
