KS1 teacher assessment moderation training Spring 2018 STA guidance: KS1 TA Guidance Guidance expanded this year to cover all aspects of teacher assessment. A more flexible approach to assessment of English writing Particular weakness Good reason
Independent writing Assessing pupils with disabilities Giving schools notice of a visit A more flexible approach A pupils writing should meet all the pupil can statements within the standard they are judged to be working at. Teachers can use their discretion to ensure that, on occasion, a particular weakness does not prevent an accurate judgement being made of a pupils overall attainment. A teachers professional judgement about whether the pupil has met the standard overall takes precedence, but teachers must be
able to justify their decisions during moderation. Particular weakness Teachers can use their discretion. A particular weakness can relate to a part or the whole of a statement(s). A particular weakness may well relate to a specific learning difficulty, but it is not limited to this. The same overall standard must be applied equally to all pupils. Good reason When a teacher deems that a pupil meets a standard despite a
particular weakness, they must have good reason to judge that this is the most accurate standard to describe the pupils overall attainment. Teachers must be confident that the weakness is an exception in terms of the pupils overall attainment. Moderators should scrutinise whether there was good reason to reach this judgement. Independent writing Teachers must base their judgements on writing which has been produced independently. A piece of writing may provide evidence of a pupil demonstrating
some pupil can statements independently, but not others. This does not mean that the entire piece is not independent. Schools must identify independent work, and clarify the degree of support a pupil has received. Assessing pupils with disabilities All schools are required to make reasonable adjustments for pupils with disabilities. If a pupil has a disability that physically prevents them from demonstrating a pupil can statement altogether, even with reasonable adjustments in place, these statements can be excluded from the teacher assessment judgement.
Teachers should use their professional discretion. Worth noting Local agreements Variation of moderated schools Giving schools notice of the visit Number of moderators per visit Professional discussion Borderline cases Sample size Worth noting (continued)
Re-moderation Record of visit Pupils outside of the moderation sample Appeals Different models Good reason Please read the following scenarios from the relevant document within your training pack: Esther: KS1 expected standard (discretion should apply) Lucas: KS1 expected standard (discretion should not apply) Discuss both scenarios.
You should consider Why Esthers teacher has good reason for applying discretion in terms of her particular weakness. Why Lucas is not be deemed to have a particular weakness. Revised pupil can statements for working at the expected standard Working at the expected standard Some of the statements in the revised teacher assessment framework for writing remain unchanged. The pupil can, after discussion with the teacher:
use present and past tense mostly correctly and consistently spell many common exception words* o Pupils should be assessed based on words used in their writing. o Pupils would not necessarily have to use the specific examples of common exception words listed in Appendix 1 as these are non-statutory. o Spelling tests and other class work can contribute to evidence. Working at the expected standard The pupil can, after discussion with the teacher: segment spoken words into phonemes and represent these by graphemes, spelling many of these words correctly and making phonically-plausible attempts at others.
Working at the expected standard The pupil can, after discussion with the teacher: form capital letters and digits of the correct size, orientation and relationship to one another and to lower-case letters use spacing between words that reflects the size of the letters o Pupils independent handwriting should demonstrate consistency in letter formation and word spacing, not just happening occasionally o Handwriting books and exercises can provide evidence of pupils independent application of handwriting, however they cannot form the only evidence. Evidence should be mainly
drawn from pupils using and applying their knowledge in their own independent writing. Working at the expected standard The pupil can, after discussion with the teacher: demarcate most sentences in their writing with capital letters and full stops, and use question marks correctly when required use co-ordination (e.g. or / and / but) and some subordination (e.g. when / if / that / because) to join clauses o The examples listed do not dictate the evidence required, but show only how the statement might be met.
Working at the expected standard The pupil can, after discussion with the teacher: write about real events, recording these simply and clearly. o No specific statement about writing about real events in the previous interim framework. o A pupil must have written about a real event to achieve the expected standard. Working at the expected standard The pupil can, after discussion with the teacher write simple, coherent narratives about personal experiences and those of others (real or fictional).
Narrative is an account of connected events, real or imagined Coherence is supported by the use of: o the appropriate tense o co-ordinating and subordinating conjunctions Exemplification Exemplification materials have been updated to reflect changes to the statutory teacher assessment frameworks. Published exemplification is a suite of non-statutory materials that may be used by schools to support their understanding of the frameworks. Local Authorities may find it useful to refer to these to support
external moderation visits. Moderators should not expect teachers to provide specific evidence similar to the published examples. Exemplification Three collections published for use in 2018: o Jamie: KS1 - working towards the expected standard o Kim: KS1 - working at the expected standard o Ali: KS1 - working at greater depth within the expected standard Evidence check boxes have been retained in order to show how each collection meets the standard. There is no requirement for
schools or moderators to use the same approach. Working at the expected standard - Kim A collection of work from a year 2 pupil, Kim, that meets the requirements . for pupil can statements within the statutory teacher assessment framework for working at the expected standard
Working at the expected standard Look at Piece A. From the annotation boxes, the words and phrases relating to coherent writing are: clear well-sequenced in the right order The pupil uses the imperative verbs so that the reader knows what to do.
Working at the expected standard Look at Piece B. From the annotation boxes, the words and phrases relating to coherent writing are: Effective details contribute to the picture being painted. The past tense (including the past progressive) is used correctly and consistently throughout the description.
Activities Activity 1: Kims collection Activity 2: Applying the expected standard to a collection of work Activity 3: Reviewing the commentary Working at greater depth within the expected standard Ali's collection of writing is used to exemplify writing at working at greater depth within the expected standard.
Working at greater depth within the expected standard The pupil can, after discussion with the teacher: write effectively and coherently for different purposes, drawing on their reading to inform the vocabulary and grammar of their writing. Working at greater depth within the expected standard Examples of evidence for this statement: Vocabulary drawn from traditional tales (Piece A) The simple, repeated vocabulary drawn
from traditional tales is used to very good effect. [C] Working at greater depth within the expected standard Purpose and organisation (Piece B): This recount of a school
visit fulfils its purpose effectively. It combines an account of the days events with the pupils commentary on exploring the castle and a personal response to what was seen. Material is well organised in sections. Subheadings, a feature of non-narrative texts, guide the reader
around the castle, reflecting the writers enthusiastic exploration of the site (At the outer walls, Up the spiral, Down the spiral, At the top of the keep). Working at greater depth within the expected standard Grammar (Piece E) The pupil uses the
present tense correctly and consistently to describe the cats character and behaviour, i.e. this is the continuing state of the cat. The past tense is used consistently in answering the question: How did I feel about the book? [seen earlier in the text]
} This ambitious sentence shows the pupil controlling grammar exceptionally well. It contains subordination (when) and co-ordination (or), providing additional information and detail about Tuffys habitual behaviour, and different
responses to his owners commands. Working at greater depth within the expected standard Drawing on their reading to inform vocabulary and grammar (Piece F): It draws on
aspects of the grammar and vocabulary of the original, including using repetition effectively and building up the description of the increasingly disgusting sandwich. New vocabulary shows
the pupil having drawn on the original as a launch pad for ideas. Working at greater depth within the expected standard The pupil can, after discussion with the teacher: make simple additions, revisions and proofreading corrections to their own writing
The revision adds emphasis. [C] Working at greater depth within the expected standard The pupil can, after discussion with the teacher: use the punctuation taught at key stage 1 mostly correctly spell most common exception words add suffixes to spell most words correctly in their writing, (e.g. ment, -ness, -ful, -less, -ly) use the diagonal and horizontal strokes needed to join some
letters Activity Activity 4: Applying the working at greater depth within the expected standard Timeline for 2018 moderator standardisation exercise 1 Activities
