Assessment Procedures at Eureka Primary Scho​ol

 

​​

Nationally, from September 2015, we are no longer assessing pupils using levels – the government have called this 'assessing without levels'. In years one to six, the pupils will be assessed against National Standards. National Standards are set by the government and the expectation is that your child, by the end of the academic year, should achieve these in order to be at the required standard for their year group.

 

At Eureka Primary School, on-going and end of term assessment is used to make judgements against achieving National Standards and progress made in years one to six. Assessment is an on-going process that informs planning, teaching and learning on a daily basis.

 

ON-GOING ASSESSMENT

 

  • On-going (formative) assessment happens in the classroom, on a day to day basis, to assess understanding, skills and progress.
  • How well your child is learning informs planning and next steps.
  • Your child will know what they are trying to achieve and how they can improve.

 

  • At Eureka Primary School we use our own systems for formative and summative assessment.
  • Your child will be regularly assessed against their year group National Standard statements in reading, writing and maths.

 

END OF TERM / YEAR ASSESSMENT

 

  • Formal (summative) assessment is completed using standardised tests.
  • PIRA and PUMA tests are used three times a year, near the end of each term.
  • These tests are appropriate for the year group of your child and they assess the coverage of the national curriculum and standards.
  • The tests are progressive as opposed to just end of year assessments.

 

  • Once test are completed and marked, your child will be assessed against the National Standards using all of the on-going data (learning in lessons and their books) as well as their test results.

    At the end of each term, your child will be assessed using scaled scores, with the expectation of meeting National Standards for their year group. 

 Achieving National Standard in KS1

 We use teacher judgement to assess a children’s performance throughout the year in Year 2.  To support this, we also use scaled scores from assessments in reading, maths and grammar, punctuation and spelling.  A scaled score is calculated from the raw score (number of answers correct in an assessment).  100 is the score to achieve the national standard within a year group.

For a child assessed as ‘Below’, they are working below the national standard of Year 2.  They will  have a scaled score and judgement taken from either a Reception or a Year 1 assessment.  This means we can show progress.  For a child assessed with a scaled score between 85 - 99, they are working within their year group objectives / working towards achieving the national standard but have not met the national standard for their year group.

 FOR A CHILD ACHIEVING 100+, THEY HAVE MET THE NATIONAL STANDARD FOR THEIR YEAR GROUP.  FOR A CHILD ACHIEVING 110 - 115, THEY HAVE ACHIEVED GREATER DEPTH / ABOVE THE NATIONAL STANDARD FOR THEIR YEAR GROUP.

For a child assessed as ‘Below’, they are working below the national standard and not within their year group standards.  They will be assessed with a scaled score but this will be gained from assessments taken below their school year: a Year 5 child will be ‘Below’ in their year group but they will have a scaled score and judgement taken from, for example, a Year 3 assessment, and will gain a scaled score.  This means we can show progress.   For a child assessed with a scaled score between 80 - 99, they are working within their year group objectives / working towards achieving the national standard but have not met the national standard for their year group.

 FOR A CHILD ACHIEVING 100+, THEY HAVE MET THE NATIONAL STANDARD FOR THEIR YEAR GROUP. FOR A CHILD ACHIEVING 110 - 120, THEY HAVE ACHIEVED GREATER DEPTH / ABOVE THE NATIONAL STANDARD FOR THEIR YEAR GROUP.
