Assessment on Evidence for Learning (EfL)

Learning Journeys:

At Oakfield Park school have been working alongside West Leeds SILC to introduce "Learning Journeys" to assess our students without levels.  We use the software "Evidence for Learning", which is IPad based, to capture evidence and assess it using a points score.  There is also a traffic light system which records additional factors which can impact on our students progress.

Informal Pathway

Communication and Cognition is assessed through the following Learning Journeys;

  • Footsteps - evidences the smallest steps of progress which our students with PMLD make.
  • Stepping out - evidences the next steps of progress which our PMLD, complex and sensory students make. 
  • Intensive interaction - evidences the small steps of communication and interaction which is hard to track for our non-verbal and pre-verbal students.

Students on the informal pathway will also be assessed through;

  • Physical - We evidence the physical progress all our students make including MATP, hydrotherapy and boccia

 

Semi-formal & Formal Pathway

Communication and Cognition is assessed through the following Learning Journeys;

  • First Steps (Communication and Cognition)
  • Pacers (Reading, Writing, Spoken Word and listening)
  • Strides (Reading, Writing, Spoken Word and listening)
  • Functional Skills (Functional Skills English and Maths)

Students on the semi-formal pathway will also be assessed through;

  • SEB - Social, emotional and behaviour - We evidence progress in developing the ability to socialise, regulate emotions and to develop ways to manage their own behaviour. 
  • Physical - We evidence the physical progress all our students make. 
  • VI - We evidence specific skills which our students with visual difficulties are working towards
  • PSHE at KS3 & 4 - which is designed to record progress in a range of areas linked to our bespoke curriculum at Oakfield Park School  
  • Marching on at Post 16 - has a focus on Independence - Time, money, cooking, travel, personal care and work experience skills. 

 

Evidence for Learning allows us to decide which Learning Journey the students should be assessed on and from here we can monitor the progress the student makes.  

 

Parents and carers can also add photos and video evidence to demonstrate learning at home.  If you want to know more click here.
