Updated for the 2017 test cycle.

This exemplification material may be used with the 2017 interim teacher assessment frameworks.

Key stage 1 (KS1) exemplification material to support teacher assessment (TA) of each pupil at the end of KS1.

This guidance was originally provided for the 2016 test cycle but may also be used with the 2017 interim TA frameworks.

The exemplification shows examples of pupils’ work at the standards set out in the interim TA frameworks.

If teachers are confident in their judgements, they do not need to refer to the exemplification materials. The exemplification materials are there to help teachers make their judgements where they want additional guidance.
