Spring Year 1 GPS Assessment
Spring Year 1 GPS Assessment Resource Pack
This Spring Year 1 GPS Assessment Resource Pack has been created to assess pupil knowledge of all the blocks and small steps covered so far in the Spring term. The pack includes an SATs style assessment with 17 questions linked to all of the small steps in Spring; a mark scheme with content domain coverage, small step coverage with suggested levels* and a teacher assessment spreadsheet to identify pupils working at Year 1 Emerging, Year 1 Developing, Year 1 Expected or Year 1 Greater Depth. These levels are currently provided as a guideline only.
*These suggested levels are subject to change once enough data has been collected. You can submit your data through this form, which collects individual scores. We will use this information to produce scaled scores in early 2019.
