Summative Assessment in Non-Core Subjects

Tuesday, June 11, 2024 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event

This session for primary subject leaders will address the challenge of assessing progress in non-core subjects.

Summative assessment practices allow us to gauge if pupils are learning the intended curriculum, however there are no definite guidelines to support our assessment in non-core subjects, and apart from the composite goals in the National Curriculum, no benchmarks support our judgments.

As primary subject leaders, we know that: “The curriculum is the progression model.”

Summative Assessment is a curriculum issue and not a data issue. Any assessment practices that we use should reveal if knowledge has been transferred from the working memory to the long-term memory. As the Ofsted Inspection states: “When used effectively, assessment helps pupils to embed knowledge and use it fluently, and assists teachers in producing clear next steps for pupils.”

This session will explore the following:
  • To know and understand what summative assessment might focus on.
  • To understand the importance of validity when devising summative assessment tasks.
  • To consider how summative assessment might be approached in non- core subjects.
  • To provide teachers with practical examples to consider.
