Examples of pupils' work to support teachers' assessment of science at the end of key stage 2 in 2018.
These exemplification materials may be used with the 2018 teacher assessment (TA) frameworks.
The materials provide examples of pupils’ work to support teachers in making judgements against the statutory TA frameworks for science at the end of key stage 2.
They were originally provided for the 2016 test cycle but may also be used with the 2018 TA frameworks. They illustrate how the ‘pupil can’ statements in the frameworks might be met. They do not dictate a particular method of teaching, or the evidence expected from the classroom, which will vary from school to school.
If teachers are confident in their judgements they may choose not to refer to these materials. These exemplification materials are provided to help teachers make their judgements where they want additional guidance.
Local authorities may also find the materials useful to support external moderation visits.
