Assessment at Compass Primary Academy includes ongoing evaluation of learning by teachers on a day to day basis which allows them to tailor their teaching accordingly – commonly referred to as ‘Responsive Teaching’.
We have reviewed our approach to assessment this academic year. The rationale to reviewing and amending our assessment and data management system reflects the advice published in “Eliminating unnecessary workload associated with data management” (March 2016)
- be streamlined: eliminate duplication – ‘collect once, use many times’
- be ruthless: only collect what is needed to support outcomes for children. The amount of data collected should be proportionate to its usefulness. Always ask why the data is needed.
- be prepared to stop activity: do not assume that collection or analysis must continue just because it always has
- be aware of workload issues: consider not just how long it will take, but whether that time could be better spent on other tasks
