Assessment at Ivanhoe

How do we measure progress at Ivanhoe? 

 
At Ivanhoe, we use pathway system represented by colours: these colours each define skills, knowledge and understanding of an appropriate challenge leading towards final outcomes at GCSE.

How does my pathway relate to GCSE?

For English, Maths and Science we will use KS2 results (either a KS2 National Curriculum Level like a 4B or a KS2 scaled score out of 120) to place your child on the appropriate pathway.  For other subjects we look at progress made from subject assessments at the start of the year.

How do I know if I am making progress?

Students are expected to become proficient or expert in the range of skills, knowledge and understanding associated with the pathway. Progress will be shown by becoming more independent, moving from:
1)    Developing - able to complete tasks and show skills with help
2)    Proficient - able to complete tasks and show skills independently
3)    Expert  - able to complete tasks and show skills independently, consistently and under pressure e.g in an exam.

Can your child move pathways?

Teachers will decide at each assessment point whether your child is on the right pathway. Some movement is inevitable as students progress at different rates. 


Will your child have to sit exams?

Yes. In the summer terms, all year groups will have exams aside from testing at the end of modules in some subject areas. Exam timetables will be released around Easter so that you know when each exam takes place.

 

Grades - Letters – Numbers – Changes at GCSE.

You may already be aware that GCSE grades are changing to numbers. You can see from the grid below that the old C grade appears in both a 4 and 5.  There isn’t an exact equivalence between old GCSE grades and the new number system. For instance the new number 9 is higher than current A* and for the middle grades there is some overlap – the old B grade is shared in both numbers 6 and 5.  As the system develops we will have more clarity.  The first sets of numbers will be awarded to students at GCSE in 2017 in Maths and English other subjects follow in 2018.
