Physical Education ‘The exemplification of standards materials support effective assessment by demonstrating national standards across key stage 3 at National Curriculum levels 3 to 8’. They are a resource and reference point for teachers: when assessing pupils' work in relation to national standards for training and professional development purposes when thinking about next steps for students. Reflect on the key messages when assessing pupils in PE. Reflect on whether your students’ attainment is in line with nationally agreed benchmarks. Have clarity about how you might use the standards files materials in your school. With the evidence that you have, which characteristics from the level descriptor/s is Tom demonstrating? Justify your decision? Reference NC key processes/concepts and NC levels in your justification. Need evidence through all of the key processes and not the range and content to make a secure judgement. You must use your professional judgement across a range of contexts. Need to know the extent of student input (decision making). If looking at overall attainment we need to look at making a judgement towards the end of a block of work / year / key stage. The following aspects will affect standards: understanding of national expectations, depth, complexity, challenge, quality of teaching What are the characteristics of a level 6? What is unique about a level 6? Which characteristics does a level 6 demonstrate that a level 5 doesn’t? What are the key characteristics in your level (refer to key processes/concepts)? You may choose to show relevant evidence from the exemplification website to share with the group. The standards files enable teachers across the country to have a common understanding of different levels and the different aspects of the subject that underpin each one. You can use the standards files: to standardise judgements, so that we all have a shared understanding of national standards before we make assessments as a reference when assessing students to support moderation to clarify what it means to make progress to exemplify good assessment practice What are the key messages that have been discussed today and how will they affect the way you lead and manage PE in your school? How do you know (as subject leader) how well all of your students are doing in PE? How will you use these national norms in your school to raise standards in PE? What will further raise standards in your school? WHAT WILL YOU DO FOLLOWING THIS TRAINING?
