Secondary schools are in the midst of a revolution in assessment. End-of-key-stage assessments have finally been abolished and a new, highly accurate, learner-focused method of assessment is being introduced – Assessing Pupils’ Progress.
The pilot schools are already seeing an impact on results from APP, but getting to this stage requires a carefully planned, strategic approach to implementation. How will you make APP assessment successful at your school?
The first national APP conference on the 25th February 2010 is your essential guide to successful implementation of APP in teaching and learning. Receive experience-based guidance from the pilot schools on how to use APP to craft high quality, personalised learning and develop accurate, consistent assessment. Pick up practical strategies on helping your colleagues use APP to inform teaching and learning, and develop an approach to APP that fits in with your school’s current assessment practice to minimise the workload for teachers.
