Secondary: Assessing pupils' progress in ICT
The National Strategies has produced a set of resources offering a structured approach to periodic assessment. Assessing Pupils' Progress (APP) in ICT enables teachers to:
- diagnose pupils' strengths and areas for development
- track pupils' progress in ICT across Key Stage 3
- review and revise schemes of work and approaches to teaching and learning.
- a teachers' handbook providing detailed advice and guidance on implementing APP across the ICT department, an essential starting point for subject leaders and teachers.
- standards files exemplifying each National Curriculum level from level 3 to 8 containing pupils' work with a detailed commentary and provide an essential guide for teachers to standardise their judgements.
- Assessment criteria summarising the progression from levels 3 to 8 and covering all three assessment focuses.
To what extent are ICT teachers using periodic assessment and the Assessing Pupils' Progress materials to:
- diagnose pupils' strengths and areas for development?
- track pupils' progress in ICT across Key Stage 3?
- review and revise schemes of work and approaches to teaching and learning?
