This page has several useful resources to help in understanding progression in Mathematics. The links are also available in this Evernote notebook or alternatively a Diigo list (the green links take you directly to each site). (You do not need an account with either – but both are excellent!)
I have provided some links for students here.
- The focused assessment materials make it clear what students should be able to do and give probing questions.
- Posters on the Suffolk Mathematics site which have been used or adapted from resources on Mark McCourt’s emaths site illustrate the requirements at each KS3 level and KS4 grade clearly.
- Mathematics: Attainment target level descriptions
- The progression maps describe progression in each strand of the framework and offer examples and probing questions.
- Various nrich resources such as the excellent curriculum mapping documents which link topics to nrich problems and an article by Jennifer Piggott which addresses the use of NRICH resources to support assessment of progress.
- Exemplification examples: these illustrate what pupils should be able to do within a particular strand of objectives by the end of each year.
- The Kangaroo Maths site offers extensive resources including levelopaedias providing exemplifications and probing questions for each of the assessment criteria except ‘Using and Applying’. (For all information on Assessment choose Kenny’s Pouch, then Assessment, then KS2/3). See also the ‘Convinced’ package which is a resource package based on the assessment criteria from Levels 4 to 8. Each set of questions includes a self assessment for students. Also from Kangaroo Maths check the Assessing Pupils’ Progress section. The e-profile spreadsheet has probing questions for each of the assessment criteria.
- CIMT have analysed the diagnostic tests used in Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9 so that scores in these tests can be converted into National Curriculum levels. Scroll down this page until you see the section ‘Work out National Curriculum Levels from diagnostic tests’.These tables are also available on the Book 7, Book 8 and Book 9 pages.
