Code: ASS/19/196/P Assessment moderation clusters for teachers in Years 3 and 4 - Hemel Hempstead, Abbots Langley and Kings Langley

These sessions will focus on exploring accuracy of assessment judgements against age-related expectations (focusing mainly on HfL assessment criteria, although also relevant where schools are using different assessment systems), as well as promoting good formative assessment practice that can be built into everyday learning. They also provide an excellent opportunity for Year 3 and Year 4 teachers to work together to achieve greater consistency in standards. The meetings will focus on assessment of maths and reading.

Delegates will be asked to bring some examples of work and there will be suggested activities to support the assessment discussions – please see information sent to schools, as well as teacher guidance on the grid: http://www.thegrid.org.uk/learning/assessment/ks2/moderationclusters.shtml
