What is APP Assessment?
APP assessment (Assessing Pupil Progress) is a structured approach to in-school assessment which:
- Enables teachers to make judgements about their pupils’ attainment, keyed into national standards develops and refines teachers’ understanding of progression in their subject
- Provides diagnostic information about the strengths and weaknesses of individual pupils and groups of pupils
- Enables teachers to track pupils’ progress over time
- Informs curriculum planning
- Facilitates the setting of meaningful curricular targets that can be shared with pupils and parents
- Promotes teaching that’s matched to pupils’ needs
- Supports the transfer of meaningful information at key transitional points, e.g. from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 3
- APP assessment is not a 'bolt-on' to existing arrangements, APP assessment is all you need!
Classroom Monitor covers all of this and more...
As teachers use simple APP assessment markbooks in Classroom Monitor to record and assess pupil progress against APP criteria and assessment focuses, Classroom Monitor works hard so that one ongoing teacher assessment feeds into:
- Assessment for learning - detailed next steps in pupil friendly speak can be shared instantly with pupils.
Planning - teachers can share resources, lesson plans and resources across the school using the markbook.
- Evidence recording - As pupil's work is assessed, evidence can be attached to pupils' records instantly (and then shared with parent and pupil online).
- Detailed pupil and cohort tracking information - available instantly including: target setting, termly tracking sheets, progress graphs etc.
- Online reporting to parents- teachers can note comments and observations from their assessment, and provide links to photos, sound clips, written examples of students' work, and resources
