27 Teacher Assessment of Writing The Process
28 Writing Assessment - The Process 1. Gather a range of evidence through formative assessment. 2. Use the National Standards (NC Levels) and the Revised Criteria to support statutory assessment. 3. To help you determine the overall level, highlight the assessment criteria which each pupil consistently achieves. 4. Decide on next steps (planning, teaching and learning using the current Statutory National Curriculum)
29 National Standard NC Level 1 Pupils' writing communicates meaning through simple words and phrases. In their reading or their writing, pupils begin to show awareness of how full stops are used. Letters are usually clearly shaped and correctly orientated.
30 National Standard NC Level 2 Pupils' writing communicates meaning in both narrative and non-narrative forms, using appropriate and interesting vocabulary, and showing some awareness of the reader. Ideas are developed in a sequence of sentences, sometimes demarcated by capital letters and full stops. Simple, monosyllabic words are usually spelt correctly, and where there are inaccuracies the alternative is phonetically plausible. In handwriting, letters are accurately formed and consistent in size.
31 National Standard NC Level 3 Pupils' writing is often organised, imaginative and clear. The main features of different forms of writing are used appropriately, beginning to be adapted to different readers. Sequences of sentences extend ideas logically and words are chosen for variety and interest. The basic grammatical structure of sentences is usually correct. Spelling is usually accurate, including that of common, polysyllabic words. Punctuation to mark sentences - full stops, capital letters and question marks - is used accurately. Handwriting is joined and legible.
32 National Standard NC Level 4 Pupils' writing in a range of forms is lively and thoughtful. Ideas are often sustained and developed in interesting ways and organised appropriately for the purpose of the reader. Vocabulary choices are often adventurous and words are used for effect. Pupils are beginning to use grammatically complex sentences, extending meaning. Spelling, including that of polysyllabic words that conform to regular patterns, is generally accurate. Full stops, capital letters and question marks are used correctly, and pupils are beginning to use punctuation within the sentence. Handwriting style is fluent, joined and legible.
33 National Standard NC Level 5 Pupils' writing is varied and interesting, conveying meaning clearly in a range of forms for different readers, using a more formal style where appropriate. Vocabulary choices are imaginative and words are used precisely. Simple and complex sentences are organised into paragraphs. Words with complex regular patterns are usually spelt correctly. A range of punctuation, including commas, apostrophes and inverted commas, is usually used accurately. Handwriting is joined, clear and fluent and, where appropriate, is adapted to a range of tasks.
34 National Standard NC Level 6 Pupils' writing often engages and sustains the reader's interest, showing some adaptation of style and register to different forms, including using an impersonal style where appropriate. Pupils use a range of sentence structures and varied vocabulary to create effects. Spelling is generally accurate, including that of irregular words. Handwriting is neat and legible. A range of punctuation is usually used correctly to clarify meaning, and ideas are organised into paragraphs.
35 Writing Assessment Focuses (AFs) AF1 write imaginative, interesting and thoughtful texts AF2 produce texts which are appropriate to task, reader and purpose AF3 organise and present whole texts effectively, sequencing and structuring information, ideas and events AF4 construct paragraphs and use cohesion within and between paragraphs AF5 vary sentences for clarity, purpose and effect AF6 write with technical accuracy of syntax and punctuation in phrases clauses and sentences AF7 select appropriate and effective vocabulary AF8 use correct spelling
36 Key Stage 2 Writing Exemplification 2013
37 Gather the evidence for writing Plans, drafts and final pieces Planned assessments First of the month books Mark book / tick lists Planned observations Guided writing records Reading journals Day to day marking Incidental observations during shared / guided / independent work Partner talk Annotated planning Range of evidence e.g explanation writing in History
38 What is meant by independence? Independence is about giving pupils space and time to think for themselves It occurs at some distance from direct teaching e.g. when skills taught in one context are applied in another consider the degree of independence when making your assessments
39 Make Judgements about Writing The success of any writing task depends on: Whether it achieves its purpose; How well it achieves its purpose; How well the purpose is achieved depends on: Clarity and accuracy of language for the reader/audience including accurate sentence structure and punctuation; Whether the writing is well-organised and structured, developed and sustained; Suitability of the form e.g. letter
40 Make Judgements about Writing Have an overview of each pupil s ability to write for each of these assessment strands: Sentence structure and punctuation AF5 AF6 Text structure and organisation Composition and effect AF3 AF4 AF1 AF2 AF7 Avoid technique spotting: can punctuate speech, for example.
