The materials providing a solution to Assessment without Levels and the advice around preparing schools for the new curriculum have really supported my school in obtaining excellent results this year.James Edwards, Headteacher, Lee Common CE School, Great Missenden
The PA Plus assessment model was developed by highly experienced advisers working with schools together to create solution for tracking pupils’ progress towards the end of Key Stage standards of the National Curriculum. The team of advisers emphasize the principles of focusing on formative assessment, as this is where the most gains to pupils’ learning can be made.
The detailed assessment criteria, created by subject experts, support teachers with planning and assessment in reading, writing, maths and science across Key Stages 1 and 2.
The assessment model enables teachers to track the performance of individuals, key groups of pupils (e.g. gender, Pupil Premium etc) and classes – and to quickly identify where extra support is necessary.
Our unique analysis tools, which run on SIMS Assessment Manager 7, enable school leaders to easily explore attainment and progress across the school, identify key areas for support, and demonstrate the impact of initiatives.
