Piloting the QCA’s new approach to assessment APP in KS3 English The QCA has developed a new approach to assessment, APP (Assessing Pupils’ Progress). We see what it looks like for pupils and teachers at Bishop Luffa School in Chichester, where Naomi Hursthouse has been piloting APP in KS3 English. She shares her experience of how this approach has helped teachers use a wider range of evidence to gauge pupils’ achievement and give a fuller, more formative picture of students’ strengths and weaknesses in relation to national standards.

We look at APP Reading, with a focus on AF6, as part of a lesson on reading satire; we also see a moderation session where Naomi and her colleague review two assessment folders from Year 7 pupils, and a parent-pupil review session.
