:: Inter-school moderation of final teacher assessment of Key Stage 2 writing ::
Outline
The assessment team will be leading Year 6 moderation of final end of Key Stage teacher assessment of writing, prior to the final Key Stage 2 data submission due on Thursday 29 June 2017. It is an essential requirement, as listed in the STA’s ‘2017 teacher assessment external moderation: Key Stage 2 writing’ document that schools must have robust moderation processes, that scrutinise teacher assessment both internally, and in collaboration with other schools. These moderation meetings will be an excellent opportunity for schools to ensure the consistency of their final TA for writing judgements. The moderation meetings will support colleagues in scrutinising the evidence for judgements against each of the ‘pupil can’ statements within the standard awarded from the interim TA framework and the interim pre-key stage standards for writing (from the Rochford review), using the national exemplification materials to support their judgements, with teachers from other schools.
Prerequisites
We would ask that you bring with you a ranked class list showing final teacher assessments for writing, and a range of writing that provides the evidence for each of the ‘pupil can’ statements. Evidence can come from pupils’ exercise books and other examples of written work for a range of purposes and audiences, and across a range of subjects. There is an expectation that the process of writing is evident- shown through pupil editing and re-drafting of their work. Teacher should be able to identify independent writing, and clarify the degree of support a pupil has received
