Assessment @ Bishop Walsh

  1. 1. Assessment @ Bishop Walsh<br />“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” <br />Jeremiah 29:11<br />
  2. 2. ‘Smart isn’t what you are, it’s what you get’<br />Dylan Wiliam<br />Did you know:<br />You can become cleverer<br />Your intelligence is not limited – by doing certain things you can become more intelligent (Check out the how to become cleverer slideshow on your VLE homepage<br />Hard, long term, focussed effort can transform your abilities<br />
  3. 3. How can you become really successful in your learning?<br />We want you to be really successful in your learning at Bishop Walsh. We are therefore always trying to look at ways to help you to be more successful……..<br />
  4. 4. This year we are changing the way we assess your work and help you to improve. These are the key areas…………<br />
  5. 5. There will be no more Attainment Levels– all pupils (Y7-11) will be assessed using GCSE grades<br />You will get GCSE grades from Y7<br />From Y7 - we have worked out, based on your key stage 2 SAT’s and other useful information, what you are predicted to get at GCSE in year 11<br />Term by term, you will be able to track your journey towards your predicted grade……..<br />
  6. 6. A*<br />A<br />B<br />C<br />Your GCSE journey……….<br />D<br />E<br />F<br />G<br />Y7<br />Y11<br />Y10<br />Y9<br />Y8<br />
  7. 7. ……. You will not only have a GCSE PredictedGrade <br />……… you’ll also have a GCSE ChallengeGrade <br />(at least one grade higher - and this can be raised further if you reach it)<br />
  8. 8. This will be your own Progress report………..(On your VLE home page)<br />
  9. 9. You will also have a CHALLENGE grade (This is what you should aim for)<br />You will be given GCSE grades from Y7<br />You will have a PREDICTEDgrade (The basic grade you should get)<br />This will be on the homepage of your VLE<br />
  10. 10. Green – Aim for this<br />Amber – ok<br />Each term you will have a Traffic Light report<br />RED – below – we will help you to improve<br />This will be on the homepage of your VLE<br />
  11. 11. You will have a TrafficLightreport each term:<br />
  12. 12. Marking<br />Some interesting facts that have been discovered about marking……<br />Teacher comments above about 15 or so words are generally ignored by pupils<br />If a grade is added to a teacher comment, the whole comment is generally ignored<br />If a pupil is given a good grade for their work it has no impact on progress<br />If a pupil is given a poor grade - progress is worse<br />So….<br />
  13. 13. We have therefore developed a new marking policy based on what works……. <br />Teachers will use comment only marking. (Apart from some key assessments)<br />Comments will clear, short and tell you how to improve<br />
  14. 14. Many Departments will use the assessment stamp (or something similar) ……..<br />
  15. 15. Self & Peer Assessment:<br />This is a powerful tool to help you understand how to analyse your work and progress. <br />Peer and Self-Assessment will be regularly undertaken in lessons as well as teacher marking. <br />
  16. 16. Many pupils initially find comment only marking difficult as getting grades is interesting (When they are good!)<br />However, we are committed to doing what works<br />
  17. 17. You will still get GCSE grades for key assessments and occasional pieces of work<br />
  18. 18. For each subject you need to know:<br />
