We commissioned Shift Learning, an independent research organisation specialising in education, to carry out an evaluation study on the impact of Rising Stars Progress Tests. You can download the report on the findings of this research here.
We all feel that this will make analysis and target setting much smoother going forward. For example, now a low score on a text will indicate a relative weakness whereas before we would have to do question analysis to find this out.
We use the tests in all four subjects to show where the specific gaps are in the class’s knowledge to help us plan the next steps for their learning.
We used the diagnostic test in both year groups for formative purposes and it gave us a good idea of where the children were in their learning and what prior knowledge they had. It was very useful to inform our planning! The end of unit assessments were useful both as a means of summative assessment and for addressing misconceptions. The tests were simple to conduct and were challenging enough to differentiate the high achieving children from the low achieving children.
