Assessment - looking at children’s work in science

Curriculum profiles 

Curriculum profiles provide a way in which the child’s progress can be assessed and recorded using indicators of achievement. These indicators, sometimes grouped in sets, attempt to summarise the range of knowledge, skills and attitudes which might be expected at various stages in the child’s progress.

By marking, highlighting or shading these indicators as they are achieved by pupils, a record may be kept of the child’s progress. Reviewing the child’s portfolio of work and other tasks completed by him/her will help the teacher to update the profile from time to time, and the curriculum profile can provide the information needed for the child’s end-of-year pupil profile card.
