Assessments

From September 2021, assessment data will be collected and reported home three times per year Autumn, Spring and Summer.

When students join Hanson, timetable sets are based, keeping in view their Key Stage 2 Data, CATs test and prior attainment. Following to this, subject targets are derived from FFT (Fischer Family Trust) – Data Tool.

After each assessment point, a report will be produced showing the following information:

 

Current Grade: this is the grade that the student has been consistently working at.

 

End of Year Target Grade: this is the grade that the student is working towards to achieve the expected progress.

 

Both grades are based on the GCSE 9-1 scale (with 9 being the highest). At Key Stage 3 we use a scale (a,b,c,d and WT (working towards)) to monitor and report progress towards GCSE Grade 1.

Mock Exam Grade: this is the grade achieved in the recent mock exam (if applicable)..
