Herts for Learning Online
:: Assessment and progression in primary history and geography ::
The aims of the history and geography in the National Curriculum are clearly identified, but indicators of progression in the development of pupils' knowledge, understanding and skills are not clearly defined. This course explores progression guidelines available for history and geography, and how to incorporate meaningful and manageable monitoring of pupils’ progress across the key components of these subjects. The key characteristics of pupil outcomes will be identified at above and below average expectations for exemplar tasks, and how these characteristics can be made explicit as success criteria to help pupils identify the standards they are aiming for. Delegates will have the opportunity to discuss sample pupil outcomes in history and geography, and to draft subject-specific success criteria statements for tasks in their own school. It would be useful if delegates could bring three geography and/or history books or samples of pupils’ work (representative of lower, average and higher abilities within a class) from at least three year groups within the school.
By attending the course participants will:
  • have an overview of 'Assessment for Learning' strategies in the context of primary history and geography
  • gain knowledge of progression guidance available for primary history and geography
  • receive guidance relating to assessment task success criteria in the promotion of progression
  • review the assessment opportunities and the function of a standards portfolio
Suitable for:
  • Classroom Teachers
  • Early Career Teachers
  • Newly Qualified Teachers
