Assessment on Evidence for Learning
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.
English and Maths are assessed through a range of Journeys (see PDF documents below for more details)
Additional Learning Journey Pathways can run alongside the main Learning Journey the students are on.
- Footsteps - evidences the smallest steps of progress which our students with PMLD make.
- Stepping out - evidences the next steps of progress which our SLD 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.
- Stomping on - has a focus on behaviour which assesses our students with social, emotional and mental health needs in the same system. (BOXALL Profile statements have been integrated into this Learning Journey.)
- Marching on - has a focus on Independence - Time, money, cooking, travel, personal care.
- SCERTS® Model is a research-based educational approach and multidisciplinary framework that directly addresses the core challenges faced by children and persons with Autism and related disabilities, and their families. SCERTS® focuses on building competence in Social Communication, Emotional Regulation and Transactional Support.
- PSHE - which is designed to record progress in a range of areas linked to our bespoke curriculum at Oakfield Park School
- VI - used to assess specific skills which our students with visual difficulties are working towards
- Physical - We are currently developing a physical assessment journey for evidencing physical progress all our students make.
Evidence for Learning allows us as a school to decide which Learning Journey Pathway/s 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.
