Pupil 8 – Year 9 – Secure level 6

The standards files for reading are a central part of the Assessing Pupils’ Progress (APP) approach. Their main purpose is to exemplify standards by giving guidance on accurate assessments and acting as a resource and reference point for teachers.

Each standards file includes:

  • examples of pupils’ ongoing classroom work, which have been assessed to exemplify the APP approach and show national standards
  • commentary on the evidence at assessment focus (AF) level, which leads to a summative judgement on the pupil's work
  • the assessment guidelines sheet that records both a profile of attainment across the AFs and a National Curriculum level for the attainment target.
