Assessment

Reading

Students are assessed for their ability to understand, interpret and analyse texts. Students will be given a single lesson to plan and write a response prompted by a question on either a character, relationship or theme that they are studying. Students will be provided with an extract to prompt their ideas. Class teachers mark these assessments and allow students to redraft and improve using focused feedback.

Writing

Students are assessed for their ability to write appropriately to task. If students are completing transactional piece such as letters then they will be assessed on their ability to write for purpose, audience and form. If students are writing imaginatively then they are assessed for their ability to utilise language and structure to form stories or descriptions. Students in Years 7 and 8 are provided the assessment question at the start of each term, they are then allowed to plan for ten minutes each week before writing their full response in a single lesson. Students in Year 9 are not provided the assessment ahead of time, they are expected to plan and write a full response in a single lesson to replicate the later examination process. Class teachers mark these assessments and allow students to redraft and improve using focused feedback.
