Sharing information with pupils
A pupil will, of course, be made aware of their results at the end of each Key Stage. What you choose to share between those points, however, is up to the school and teachers. Anything that is shared should be with the purpose of helping a child to understand their strengths and weaknesses and give them ownership of their own learning.
Our Assessment Summaries will help with this as they provide a way of sharing objective level information. The Pupil Assessment Summary, in particular, has been designed as an easy way to print a target sheet to stick in the books. These give the pupil an up to date target list and a comments box so that this opens a two way dialogue where a pupil may add a remark such as "I think I have met this please check my book on 19th Sept" etc. These summaries sit within the markbooks module as they rely on ongoing formative assessment information to ensure they are always relevant.
A teacher may also wish to open up the Pupil Markbook with pupils separately so they can discuss their individual progress on various objectives in more detail.
These are discussions that a teacher has always had with a child, but now, more than ever, it is important not to replace what also went alongside many of these discussions - i.e. a level.
