Assessment

The new curriculum was introduced in 2015 and all schools were asked to assess without levels.  As a result of this many companies created new assessments to support schools in the 'no level' world.  

Kirk Smeaton School decided to use Rising Stars as this is in line with standardised scores.

 

Standardised scores

In 2017/18, the school started to use an assessment called Rising Stars which gives a standardised score.  Standardised scores are used as part of the KS1 and KS2 assessments.  It gives teachers a score between 85-120 to show where the child is working at.  85-99 is classed as below the National standard, 100-105 is classed as working within the National standard and 110-120 is working above National standard.
