Assessment and Tracking Process
Kendal College and HMP Haverigg
Evidence of improvement in learners’ achievements, retention and progression.
The 2017 maths GCSE results provided the project team with tangible evidence that assessment for learning (AfL) strategies developed through the OTLA project and the ETF’s earlier EPG pilots have proved effective. The 2018 GCSE results in both maths and English provided further evidence of the effectiveness of the new approaches.
The college received significantly improved GCSE maths results in 2017 up from 21% to 30% high grade scores and maintained that improvement in 2018.
GCSE English scores, where AfL strategies had not yet been implemented successfully, were lower and showed significantly less increase in 2017 but after implementing the AfL strategies in 2018 high grade scores improved from 20% to 40%.
