Government Requirements for Assessment 2012. Wynne Harlen - The situations in which children learn science provide the best opportunities for assessment of their learning. June 2013 Assessment levels abolished Removal of levels allows teachers greater flexibility in the way they plan and assess childrens learning.

Government Requirements Assessment framework to show the expected standards required for end of Key Stages 1&2 (year ending 2018). A list of Pupil can statements related to NC requirements. E.g. The pupil can identify, with reasons, whether changes in materials are reversible or not. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/teacher-assessment-frameworks-at-the-end-of-key-stage-1 https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/teacher-assessment-frameworks-at-the-end-of-key-stage-2 Websites include assessment frameworks for end of key stage 2018/2019 academic year too!

Government Requirements End of Key Stage reporting required only for met/has not met; are children working at the expected standard or not? Nothing else is required. From 2018/2019 academic year, when assessing science, there is no requirement to have evidence from the classroom that pupils have met statements relating to science content taught before the final year of the key stage. Where possible, teachers should draw on assessments that have been made earlier in the key stage to make their judgement against this framework. Ways to assess learning

X End of topic tests? Government science sampling tests only 23% of children achieved national expectations in 2016. Teacher assessment data not taken into account! Ways to assess learning Formative assessment

The methods that teachers use to conduct in-process evaluations of student comprehension, learning needs, and academic progress during a lesson or whole topic. The situations in which children learn science provide the best opportunities for assessment of their learning. The outcomes of formative assessment tasks can then contribute towards end of term/year summative assessments of pupil progress (see TAPS later). Ways to assess learning

Self-assessment Peer-assessment Investigating misconceptions Talk and discussion Rich questioning Practical activities Feedback including feedback from pupil to teacher as well as feedback from teacher to pupil and from pupil to pupil.

name name name name Year 1 Science Assessment Record To judge that a pupil is working at the expected standard in science, teachers need to have evidence which demonstrates that the pupil meets all of the 'working scientifically' statements and all of the 'science content' taught in the final year of the key stage. Where possible, teachers should draw on assessments that have been made earlier in the key stage to make their judgement against this framework.

Working Scientifically: working at the expected standard (KS1 NC requirements) asking simple questions and recognising that they can be answered in different ways observing closely, using simple equipment performing simple tests identifying and classifying using their observations and ideas to suggest answers to questions gathering and recording data to help in answering questions Science Content: working at the expected standard (Y1 NC requirements) identify and name a variety of common wild and garden plants, including deciduous and evergreen trees (Y1 Plants) identify and describe the basic structure of a variety of common

flowering plants, including trees (Y1 Plants) identify and name a variety of common animals including fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals (Y1 Animals) identify and name a variety of common animals that are carnivores, herbivores and omnivores (Y1 Animals) describe and compare the structure of a variety of common animals (fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals, including pets) (Y1 Animals) identify, name, draw and label the basic parts of the human body and say which part of the body is associated with each sense (Y1 Animals) distinguish between an object and the material from which it is made (Y1 Materials) identify and name a variety of everyday materials, including wood,

plastic, glass, metal, water, and rock (Y1 Materials) describe the simple physical properties of a variety of everyday materials (Y1 Materials) compare and group together a variety of everyday materials on the basis of their simple physical properties (Y1 Materials) observe changes across the four seasons (Y1 Seasonal Changes) observe and describe weather associated with the seasons and how day length varies (Y1 Seasonal Changes) % target met % working towards % target not met 0% 0% 0% 0% 0% 0%
