Reporting and Assessment
Leading up to the publication of our Primary and Early Years school reports on Friday, and following a week of testing, the areas of Reporting and Assessment have been our focus and so it was good to see so many parents at our workshops this week.
During the Reporting and Assessment workshops, we discussed the different ways that we assess the attainment and progress of our children at BVIS, using formative and summative methods. The former of course being the ongoing assessment that teachers use through questioning, observation, book scrutiny and student feedback. Summative assessment takes place at a specific time, with the focus being on the student’s outcome following a short test, or more in-depth examination.
A combination of these formative and summative assessment methods enables the teachers to determine the key skills mastered by their students over the course of each term and ultimately, the academic year.
More information about how we support and assess the progress of our Primary students in Maths was provided during our Parent Maths Workshop. During this interactive session, parents were provided with tips they can adopt to support their children with Home Learning.
Our workshops provide opportunities for valuable parent collaborations that we enjoy at BVIS.
