How will my child be assessed?

 

Assessment and Feedback Outline Approach

KS3

5 units of practical PE are taught per year group. Each one is assessed against GCSE PE criteria in regard to skills and application to games/performance. These are subjective on going assessments but completed at the end of a block of work.

2 units per year have a formal summative assessment which on the theoretical aspects of PE that related to GCSE topics. These have short answer questions and 1 longer prose. They peer assessed initially then moderated by the staff.

During practical activities there is time for plenty of peer and self-assessment.

KS4

PE

Year 9, 10 & 11 - Each topic delivered has an end of unit test which receives detailed written feedback. We set longer answer questions for both homework and during class time that received detailed feedback.

Mock exams in Year 10 and 11 also have detailed written feedback. In addition, key 9 mark questions are identified and time given to go over with scaffolding provided when necessary. Mark schemes and model answers are used at this point.

Stater activities involved 10 minute quizzes.

Exam questions in class and homework are used throughout the years with peer assessment a major part of the learning process.
