Assessment in Practice

Assessment in Practice

In September 2012, schools started statutory assessment of the Cross-Curricular Skills (Communication and Using Mathematics) using the new Levels of Progression.

This resource shows you how three primary schools in Northern Ireland implemented the assessment arrangements for the Cross-Curricular Skill of Communication. Explore to find out about the journey these schools made from the internal standardisation stage through to the external moderation of the schools’ submissions and their outcomes.

You will discover how the schools managed the challenges of the assessment of Communication.

We have provided tips that you may find useful as you implement the assessment of Communication in your own school!

The schools involved in this project recorded their assessment journey. They shaped their practice around the key elements here.
