Key Stage 3 Assessment Overview

From September 2018, assessment data will be collected and reported home five times per year based on the cycle below.

When students join Hanson, targets are set based on their Key Stage 2 results and end of year targets are produced.  These are based on the GCSE 9-1 grading.  At the end of the half term, students will complete an assessment in each of their subjects and a report will be produced to show how they are performing in relation to where they are expected to be at that point in the year, broken down to the following bands:

In addition to the current band and the end of year target, students will also be given a grade for effort, behaviour and homework for each of their subjects.  These are based on a 9-1 scale with 9 being the highest and 1 the lowest.
