QCA GUIDANCE ON CITIZENSHIP AND HOW IRESPECT.NET HELPS YOU DELIVER BEST PRACTICE

ASSESSMENT

  • As you know, with Y9’s requiring Citizenship reports from the summer of 2004 onwards, evidence will be necessary to justify your assessments. QCA emphasise that this should be light touch, but some rigour will obviously be needed.
  • Evidence might take a variety of forms – for example, a portfolio; an exercise book; participation in discussion and debate; presentations.
  • It will be necessary to check English speaking and listening levels and also History/Geography levels for evidential and causal-effect thinking – this will give an idea of indicators of achievement.
  • Student self-assessment and student-teacher dialogue are also recommended

THE MATERIALS, ACTIVITIES AND TEACHER-STUDENT RECORD SHEETS ON THIS SITE ARE TOTALLY IN LINE WITH QCA RECOMMENDATIONS ABOUT BEST PRACTICE.
