No Nonsense Literacy: Assessment of writing
Assessment of Writing is designed to support teachers in making accurate evidence-based assessments of writing across KS1 and KS2. The range of writing will also support you in establishing expectations for each year group. As the programme follows a similar structure to that of the end of KS1 and KS2 writing exemplifications, you will be able to access samples of annotated writing to show which elements of the curriculum have been demonstrated.
Assessment of writing is:
- flexible - it provides assessment criteria for Yrs 1 - 6 and can also be used to support any existing assessment systems
- written to support subject knowledge by identifying aspects of the curriculum in practice
- annotated to focus on composition, grammar and punctuation and transcription
- written in ine with curriculum expectations and includes full details of the assessment criteria used by Babcock LDP
- up-to-date examples of annotated writing per year group are included as well as many unannotated examples. Additional new content will be added each year as part of your subscription
