On Moodle students and parents can see what assessments teachers in each subject use in order to arrive at predicted grades. These are called "Assessment programmes" and can be found under the heading "Subjects" on the black menu bar.
Changes to Assessments
There are six assessment points during the year, once every half term. At assessment points 1, 3 and 5 (in November, February and June) year 7,8 and 9 students will receive assessments in the core subjects only (English Maths and Science). All subjects will be reported at assessment points 2, 4 and 6 including the core subjects. Assessments for year 10, 11, 12 and 13 will be reported in full at each assessment point as before.
For each subject, students have a target grade, a predicted grade and grades for Attitude to Class Learning and Attitude to Home Learning(graded 1 to 4). Students also receive "Next Steps Advice" if they are significantly below their target grade or at risk of falling behind. The advice will explain to students what they need to do to improve before the next assessment point.
