Formative assessment activities are designed to identify strengths and inform the next steps that students will take to continue making progress. These include a range of low stakes quizzes, self and peer assessment tasks, verbal feedback, homework tasks and a dialogue between student and teacher focusing on progress.
We use in-class tests as a way of measuring progress in a subject since the beginning of Key Stage 3. Students complete three formal summative assessments per subject, per year. These tests are marked by teachers and give an indicator of current progress. Parents/Carers are informed of progress on these summative assessments through reports throughout the year.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the relevant tutor or Curriculum Lead, or, for more general queries about the process of assessment and reporting at Manor School, Mr M Hurren, Assistant Principal ().
