Knowing what They Know: Evidencing Attainment and Recording Progress in Primary Science

The practical nature of science, the requirement for ongoing assessment and a misunderstanding of what is meant by evidence means that teachers often worry about making inaccurate judgements and failing to track progress accurately. This course examines how to ensure assessment judgements are accurate, what evidence to use in making these judgements and how to record progress.
