    Assessment at Stratford upon Avon School - An Overview

    Assessment at Stratford upon Avon School is designed to provide a rigorous means of monitoring student progress and whether students are on track to meet or exceed targets and to further check the security, breadth and depth of knowledge and understanding of students in the classroom and throughout the year.

    How do we formally assess?

    Alongside the day to formative assessment of progress encountered in the classroom and student work – we also have a rigorous structure of formal assessment throughout the School Year:

    Students’ working at grade is recorded at key points throughout the year and reported to parents via www.MyChildAtSchool.com

    Formal Assessments

     

    Formal Assessments are completed in conditions intended to replicate external exams (Hall, Seating, Invigilation, personalised timetables etc).

    Year 12 April Assessment is completed in similar conditions to the Formal Assessments, but without individual timetables and seating plans.

    Year 12 and 13 students are additionally assessed with formal tests taking place outside of curriculum time in exam conditions, invigilated by senior staff.

    What other data do we report on?

    Forecast Grade – This grade reflects the teachers professional judgement based on the current work produced and reflects the grade that could be achieved at the end of the course (Year 11 / Year 13)

    Attitude to Study – This grade reflects how the student has been preforming in lesson time and is taken from the average register grade (with 1 being excellent) six weeks prior to interim reports.

    What sort of grading do we use?

    For the majority of subjects in years 7-11, we use the grade structure 1-9.
