Accuracy of assessment In evaluating the accuracy of assessment, we must consider how well:  assessment draws on a range of evidence of what pupils know, understand and can do in the different aspects of subjects in the curriculum, for example, through regular testing  leaders ensure the accuracy of assessment through internal and external standardisation and moderation  schools adopt the best practice of working together to moderate assessment for year groups and the end of key stages, and to develop common understanding of attainment and share records at points of transfer (within the context of the revised common transfer file).

  15. 15. Go4Schools in Geography at KS3  Fairly long units – some take 12weeks, some a half term.  Had AfL strategies embedded – identified ways of using existing AfL or developing new ones to generate levels/marks for Go4Schools.  Some end of unit assessments are written prose whilst some are tests.
