Title: APP grid
Post by: AF on October 16, 2009, 06:12:56 PM
Hi all

After looking at Judith's amazing APP grid and 235 downloads.  I thought I would offer my attempt to turn the levels into child speak.  It is not based on the geographical skills as such, but centred on Bloom's Taxonomy.

My pupils really seem to understand them and have been designing their own assessments using them.   My pupils also really like ''Mount Level' and I have created a poster version for my room.

I think it's the way it goes - I've not heard from many people!
It's interesting that since the APP stuff came up there are been more than 60 downloads. I think it shows just how many lurkers there are, who neither post nor comment.

Don't be disheartened! Feel proud that you've produced something that so many people feel is of value.

In an ideal world everyone would take the trouble to say thanks, but...

Well, I downloaded it, but...

I saved it to have a look at but it won't actually let me open it. 

... possibly because it's a Publisher file? You might not, like me, have Publisher on your main home machine. I have uploaded it somewhere so that I can download it when I turn on me other box, perhaps later.

So thanks for uploading it anyway. I'll take a look, as I did with the APP one, out of interest. If either of you want comments back on them then ask, either here or directly if you'd prefer it that way.

Fantastic - many thanks Amy
If you want to print them do it on A3 - looks stunning!
Its great to have more than one model, because it gives ius ideas and reassures us!
It is however very good CDP to have a go at doing your own as it helps teachers get to grips with the levels!!

Thank you for sharing and please do not give up!

I've occasionally had issues doanloading stuff from 4shared if I don't have the specific software installed on the machine I'm doing the downloading to. Not always, but sometimes.

It seems slightly odd like that - and a little unrelaible as a way of doing stuff like that.

GeoGeek - thanks for the positive feedback!
That's exactly how we've been using them so far.

This term we're trialling using them for some individual pupils, especially those whose literacy skills are way below their geography.
I'd be very interested to find out more about how they are being used.


There have been nearly 300 downloads so far, so any more feedback (positive or negative) is very welcome.

Thanks to both of you for taking the time to produce these.  I have just scribbled a few points down as I read through them and can see we could really use this usefully to design our new assessments for KS3 in November and to look in more detail at our own worksheets for peer assessments....  A great set of resources, thanks again.

some advice needed....

we currently 'do' formal NC levelled assessments 6 times a year (we only have 1 lesson a week)
afl is used -ie criteria shared and work is marked using a grid for the different AF and relevent NC level for that AF
pupils evaluate their own/peers work using the 3 stars and a wish/WWW/EBI principles
the level  the pupil got is written with the work and also on a template sheet at the front of the book

the question is.....do i then also need an APP grid for each pupil or is this just repetitious?? I have a feeling that I am covering the bases with the system we have but somtimes you can't see the wood for the trees!! We have OFSTED coming up and i want to get it as right as i can. I have just adjusted a doc i got from somewhere into a passport type thing with level AF descriptors for each level but now i am not sure i need it as we will spend more time filling in evidence sheets to show progress than actually making progress!

Does this make sense to anyone? Any response gratefully received.

APP is non-statutory - they can't make you do it :)

It's also not been actually released yet for geography. I think it says that somewhere earlier in this thread - iirc the release date is next year - there will be strategy meetings on it...

The stuff people have done here is guess work.

You have Ofsted coming up. Concentrate on that (and everything else you've already got to cope with anyway...) and don't worry about the filling in more evidence sheets and trying to get your head around a system that is only a guess anyway.

When it comes out take a look at it and decide if you like it. I dunno how different it'll be to the ideas people have been having. I know what I think, but noone'll know until the real ones start to appear - and then they may tweak a bit before the final one come out. We've adapted some of the IT stuff (which is my gig nowadays and is out already), but we don't use it lock, stock and barrel - we take what we like and simplify it a bit to make it more useful for us in our situation. I know that if I'd taken the NC criteria for ICT and tried to come up with my own APP stuff before it appeared that it would have been hopelessly different - but that's prolly just me being rubbish :)

I agree: make progress :D

It seems as if you're doing lots for AfL and assessment.
We had similar tasks well established. We've used the APP grids to evaluate our existing assessments - is there consistency and progression? Are there any areas of assessment not being covered?
The new KS3 gives so many opportunities for trying different forms of assessment, and I think the APP grids support this. For example I'm trialling using them for a sample of pupils when they are doing group work - I can focus on a few students and identify progress. I think they're potentially very useful for those pupils that you know are good at geography but their assessments don't reflect their understanding. You could annotate with dates to provide evidence.
We're also going to have a department meeting to develop a portfolio of sample work - I think the process of doing that will help develop understanding of progress in geography (there are 2 non-specialists).

Interesting to read this.

I was doing a spot of sorting over the weekend and came across one of the original KS3 assessment booklets for geography - I think they came out in about 95ish, so it must have been the second version of the NC I spose.

It was the tectonic booklet. I *think* David Leat et al must have written it - it was where the Mrs Endo stuff came from iirc (or where it got out to lots of people anyway). Also had a group (I think) task about the Kanto quake iirc - using annotation on an A3 (?) poster showing interlinkages between causation factors.

Fantastic stuff. And all designed specifically for assessment.

I spose these booklets have gone out of departments nowadays? Just that it strikes me as stuff that'd be really useful to have a look at when you're trialling this stuff you're talking about - iirc it was pretty well trialled. I know it worked really effectively as an assessment, although you obviously needed to circulate around the room quite well to get a handle on what was what and write it up quite quickly afterwards (I used tofind <10 words per student was plenty fwiw).

I don't spose these books are available anywhere on the web are they? There was one on the Norfolk coast that had a bunch of maps. Can't remember what the other ones were about - I think I threw them and only kept the Tectonics one because it was the coolest official (it was govt produced official guidance) stuff I'd ever seen.

Maybe, if it's not still around, I'll think about scanning it at some point if people would be interested - I guess there's lots of people who might never have seen this stuff.

I remember the booklets you talk about BST
There's details on one of them here:

They were produced in the days when QCA, now QCDA, was SCAA....
Still used the Norfolk maps when I taught - good local examples of erosion...

I am currently putting together some resources on assessment for a conference in Norfolk next week, and will put on Slideshare after the event.

I will also be at the RGS-IBG event in November that Graham mentioned, complete with some GA materials for your delectation and delight.

Thank you so much Alan - that's a fabulous insight: just the sort of thing that I need to be reminded of every now and again (my Leat books are off with an IT advisor while we try and mine some of that, err, cutting edge approach for ICT teaching - believe me, some of that would be seen as absolute rocket surgery...)

:)

Gosh, I'd forgotten about SCAA you know...

I assume the optional test stuff isn't really available as a set of resources (online or not) any more? A shame - perhaps someone who is closer to QCDA might want to ask if there's a way they could be put in the public domain as copyright commons? (although I presume the OS maps might be trickier to get agreement on).

Three stars and a wish (or two stars and a wish as it is in our feeder primaries) is where students mark their own or each other's work and identify three things that were done well (stars) and one thing that could be improved (wish).

After yesterdays Heads of Department meeting - I needed to get up to speed with all the APP and AFL - I awoke early this Saturday morning with this very much on my mind - I have spent the past two hours reading and downloading discussions I had glanced at previoulsy.

I would like to thank all those who have contributed to this and for the links to 4shared materials - I guess Amy that like me many are running to keep up, spending weekends and evenings to try to close gaps and finding time to acknowledge their gratitude is less of a priority. 

What is all the talk of work life balance?  - I am under so many pressures to produce documents for our new SLT who are panickng that we must be due for a visit from Ofsted soon.  I currently head two departments, both of which are way behind in documentation.

Have been pilotting some APP for QCDA exemplification of standards website using draft APP guidance via Alan Kinder. We have been looking at the exemplification of standards at Level 7 and Level 8. As a Humanities College English have been leading as a pilot school in the LA as well.

Again people should remember it is 'non-statutory'. David Gardner (QCDA) will be leading a session at the RGS on Thursday.

Terry,

I've left replying to this for a couple of days in the hope that someone else who's a tad less cynical minded might have said something to ease your concerns here. But anyway...

APP is not rocket surgery. I promise you.

The chances are that you've been doing APP for ages. I don't know about you, but when I read the single attainment target level descriptor when it first came out - years and years ago I know... - it was too much for me to deal with in one lump. I needed to break it down. To decide the bits I thought were important. So I did - and I ended up with about 7 threads that I felt I could manageably assess: stuff like describing/explaining; asking questions; conclusions; presenting data and so on (and, don't tell anyone, I ignored some of the LD 'cause I thought it was kinda boring).

Those threads I saw in the LD were the things I'd focus my assessment on most of the time anyway - I might only assess conclusions in an investigation for example. I certainly spent an awful lot of time on the Describe/Explain thread. I'm sure you've done the same sort of things.

I even ended up with a tick sheet for each kiddy. Marvellous it was. V useful at the end of Yr 9 to get an idea where they were. Men in Suits rather liked it as well.

What APP will do is take the new LD (which isn't much different when it comes down to it) and break it into 3 Assessment Focus (pl?). It might throw a couple of new bits in, but that's basically what it'll do if the Science and ICT ones are anything to go by.

Now, I teach ICT these days. We already have APP. I used to have a tick sheet for ICT as well - doing the same thing with the LD. All I did when APP appeared was look through the LD and the APP AF's together and review my tick list and rewrite it (as a rather whizzy spreadsheety thing fwiw) and ended up with 8 or 9 little assessment lists based on themes (like getting feedback, organising work, meeting audience needs etc...) that I could assess and, most importantly, that I could focus my assessment on when I talk to the kids. I dunno, maybe it's me or the kids I teach, but an entire AF is way too much for them to manageably get their heads around most of the time. It's much better if I focus on one or two things to improve at a time. That's what I used the APP AF for - to create the assessment themes I'll work on most of the time.

APP's useful. Really it is; but you don't have to use it off the peg. In fact, I'm not entirely sure it's designed to be used that way. I'm increasingly certain that it's designed to be *used*  - i.e. adapted and improved on; changed to meet your own needs and circumstances. And, as with so much strategy stuff, to drag everyone up to at least a base level; what it shouldn't do is stop people using their imagination and working on effective, personalised solutions. Whether it will do that is another question of course - I wonder how many people will simply take it as *the* way to do things?

Sorry, I've gone on, but your post worried me when I read it on Saturday morning because you seemed really concerned in it. I guess you prolly didn't need me to say all of that stuff. Never mind :D

Hmmmm

This has concerned me since I first read it Alan.

Non-statutory is just that. If you can do it better, more effectively, with more imagination or just in a way that suits your situation then you should do. I'm not sure your analogy really works here - at all. I'm sorry to say that - I get the point you're making, but when it comes down to it you really *don't* have to pick up APP and run with it (and certainly not without thinking about it - see my points above). You have to assess kids work and APP might (as I've said above) be helpful in how you think about that. But it's non-statutory.

Here's the thing (#1): when these came out in core subjects there was this real flap about APP. People bigging it up: next big thing, loadsa work, rewrite everything etc... So much so that *iirc* the govt has specifically addressed the non-statutory nature - really pushing that this is non-statutory and that us core subject types don't have to do it if we have a better solution already in place. Already they've said that loud and clear - the workload issue Terry addresses up the top of this page has forced that to an extent I think along with the multiple changes in curriculums.

Thing #2. I remember those non-statutory schemes of work. Everyone rushed to them didn't they? Well, maybe. In ICT lots of people did  they became the way an awful lot of people structured their courses. Still are from what I see when I go to meetings. Maybe less so in geography because we managed to break away (I think) from them a bit earlier I think.

I've never taught any of them and no one's told me off for not following the non-statutory guidance. So long as people are assessing effectively I don't think there's any need to pay all that much attention to APP either.

Oh, just got a copy of my HoD's notes from Subject Leaders meeting last week with the strategy advisory ppl (i.e. the ones with the govt script).

Quote: "APP: non-statutory. Not required. Just a toolkit to help ass ideas. Ofsted will <double underline>not</double underline> be looking for APP but will be looking for very clear AFL."

That's IT btw - so we already have it. Govt backtracking rapidly on it by the looks of it.
Title: Re: APP grid
Post by: Alan Parkinson on December 02, 2009, 04:58:59 PM
Got no problem with you disagreeing with me BST

Teachers don't have to use APP, but they have to have something that shows that progression is being recorded / assessed effectively and accurately, and some sort of application of the exemplification of standards materials is probably going to do that for them...
Ultimately, that system has to be manageable and have validity...


Title: Re: APP grid
Post by: Blue Square Thing on December 02, 2009, 05:07:08 PM
Ultimately, that system has to be manageable and have validity...

Which, arguably, is one of the issues with APP as it's been written in some of the core subjects. There's an argument that it simply reinvents a wheel that we already have (i.e. the LDs).

Of course, I'm reminded of what our strat advisor says: "yeah, you guys are OK, you're already doing it anyway". There's, once again, an element of all that in this I think.

Hi Amybee
I'd love to see your History and RE APP grids as I line manage these subject areas.
Is there any chance you could send them to me? My email address is in my profile.
Many thanks
Katharine

Thanks these are great.  Our school has just brought in a new marking policy, in response to a not so good OFSTED, so these are helping me to do a 'periodic assessment'. :)

Sorry for the belated re-post... 

Just a message for Amy (Beazley..?) - if you still use SLN...

Is there any possibility you could send your pupil speak APP that you mentioned on this post a couple of years ago...?  It sounds a whole lot better than the one I've tried to create from the NC levels which I find a lot of my lower ability students don't really get... I'd be really grateful.

It wasn't that - but am glad you directed me to this one as I can use this and apply it to our school.

Thanks
Jon

I don't know why it's not working - here's the link I've just opened - may be because 4shared has changed recently:

If it doesn't work e-mail me and I can send you the grid.

Is there still a National Curriculum in geography btw?

Hm - thanks BST. Not sure what to do about that as I can access all the stuff.

If it continues to be a problem then I can probably find somewhere to put it on the web if that's useful.

I can't access it either and it sounds like it's just the thing I'm looking for!

See above!
I'll send it if you e-mail me.
