The following is the extract from our Year 7 Long Term plan showing what we develop in the Jewellery Box SOW:
Here is a copy of the student workbooklet (Jewellery_Box_Student_Workbooklet)
You will see that the front cover identifies what the assessment pieces will be for this project. We don’t assess every piece on every project, just that, across the 3 projects they do in one year they are assessed on each piece twice. For example assessed on Product Analysis in their first and third project but not their second. This saves some time and means different projects focus on different aspects.
When you get to the relevant page of each assessment piece (for example page 4 shows the product analysis) you will see an ‘assessment ticket’ in the top right hand corner. This enables the assessment criteria to be clear to staff and students before they complete the task. It makes marking more efficient as all the teacher has to do is tick off the criteria the student has demonstrated and then write a meaningful target using the criteria. It helps with consistenty of marking across the department.
For example a student might get numbers 1 and 2 ticked off and then the target might read something like “To improve this product analysis or one in the future you should include: another point from each part of ACCESS FM to analyse the product in more detail”
The following are displayed on the board when the students complete their assessment pieces of work to show how they can push, stretch and challenge themselves, to make their work better. Success Criteria Product Analysis Success Criteria Specification Success Criteria Evaluation
