Assessment without Levels

 

DfE statement:

We have accepted the Expert Panel’s recommendation to remove level descriptors from the national curriculum and not replace them. This is because we agreed that levels have become too abstract and don’t give meaningful information about performance, nor give pupils information about how to improve. Levels have distracted from real feedback, the criteria are ambiguous and require teachers to decide how to weigh a huge array of factors. Beyond the tests at KS 2 and GCSE, it will be for schools to decide how they assess pupils’ progress.

Ofsted

Schools will be able to introduce their own approaches to formative assessment, to support pupil attainment and progression.

The assessment framework should be built into the school curriculum.

Assessment without Levels

Assessing without levels gives schools the freedom and opportunity to re-claim teacher assessment and focus on building their learning cultures. Schools will have the freedom to decide what skills and competencies are important to their settings and school populations.

Programmes of studies and attainment targets have been published.

Schools should identify assessment leads and appropriate training.
