Assessing without Levels
October 2014
Wigmore Teaching School Alliance
Data & Assessment Project
• This group was put together by Wigmore
Teaching School Alliance following funding
achieved in the development for supporting
assessment for the new National Curriculum.
National Picture – Key Points
The new National Curriculum (NC) for Key Stages 1-4 does not CURRENTLY
include any level descriptors. However, performance descriptors are due to be
published imminently.
• The new NC became statutory in
September 2014, EXCEPT for the
children who will be in Years 2, 6
and 9, who are still to be taught
the current NC and assessed
using NC levels in Summer 2015.
• There is NO NATIONAL system
for schools to use to track pupil
progress. Schools can choose to
develop their own system or
adopt any system that they feel
meets their needs.
• Summer 2016 will be the first
year of statutory assessment NOT
TO USE levels.
• Ofsted will still want to see
GOOD EVIDENCE OF PUPIL
PROGRESS, both from the
tracking of progress over time
and from qualitative evidence
such as observations of teaching
and in pupils’ written work.
Aims of this Group?
• To make assessment manageable in the absence of
levels.
• To allow teachers to feel confident in using the systems
suggested.
• To facilitate progress to be measured.
• To make the assessment system fit for purpose in terms
of children, staff, parents and Ofsted.
• To ensure consistency with a system that can be
moderated.
• To ensure consistency from the EYFS
Assessment
We are working to develop a system using SIMS* that will enable
schools to record pupils’ attainment in terms of the following:
Within Each Year Group
Entering
Within
Achieved
• Each stage of a year group has a points value so that progress
can be measured.
• The terms reflect the new and increased expectations from
the new curriculum.
*Using SIMS, as the majority of schools in Herefordshire have this MIS
System. However, schools can obviously choose their own assessment
package and develop that themselves.
Objectives
• Staff have trialled the objective sheets.
• The sheets are reduced in number from the APP model that was
used previously.
• The terms ‘entering’ , ‘ within’ & ‘achieved’ have been allocated
with a points value for each year group so that progress can be
measured. The terms reflect the new and increased expectations
from the new curriculum.
• 3 points per year is deemed as good progress (this would mean a
child would be secure in 90% plus of number and SSM objectives
over a year group) . 3 points plus would be better than expected
progress (example to follow later in presentation).
• Specific key stage milestones would be EYFS, Year 2, Year 4 & Year
6.
• The documents can also be used as a planning tool.

Maths Assessment Example
ENTERING
WITHIN
ACHIEVED
For a child to be deemed to be ‘ENTERING’ into the year
group objectives they should have achieved UP TO 50% of
the objectives for Number and SSM.
For a child to be deemed working ‘WITHIN’ a year group’s
objectives they need to have achieved AT LEAST 50% of
the Number objectives and 50% of the SSM objectives
For a child to be deemed ‘ACHIEVED’ within a year group’s
objectives then they would have had to have achieved 90%
of the Number objectives and 90% of SSM objectives
* For year 6 these percentage rules would also apply to algebra & statistics.

Example of Marksheet
The marksheet should reflect :
• prior attainment for the child
• termly attainment for the child
• termly and yearly progress from baseline of that
year*
• end of year key stage milestones – Year 2, 4 and 6
*equivalent to end of previous year or when a new child starts in
the relevant year group

Other considerations
• Age expectation tests? Various schemes available
• High school liaison for KS3
• Positive feedback from senior management from both
primary and high schools.
• Consultation with other educational experts.
• Completely flexible.
• SIMS tracking tools can be adapted to suit your needs and
used for other age related assessments.
.
Next Steps….
• Maths pilot beginning autumn term with various
Herefordshire primary schools
• Writing is being developed in conjunction with Margaret
Fennell.
• We are awaiting further guidance in connection with
Reading.
• We continue to work with Here Teach but would welcome
feedback from ANY school.
