The greatly anticipated exemplification material for English writing and mathematics has now been published by the Standards and Testing Agency. These documents serve to support accurate end-of-key-stage teacher assessment in 2016. The materials are provided for key stage 1 and key stage 2, with exemplifications for:
· working towards the expected standard;
· working at the expected standard; and
· working at greater depth within the expected standard.
It is worth noting that to meet a standard within the interim teacher assessment framework, a child must demonstrate attainment of all of the statements within that standard and all the statements in the preceding standard(s). Judgement as to whether a child meets a statement should be made across a collection of evidence, rather than individual pieces of work, however, sufficient evidence of consistent performance across several pieces of work is needed to demonstrate understanding and application of that statement.
