Assessments

We are committed to ensuring all our students leave Harris Girls’ Academy East Dulwich with the very best results. We achieve this by great teaching, which is assessed through regular and rigorous testing.

The results of these tests are communicated to parents via the student report. The AMLG is the student’s assessment grade for that subject and the TMLG is the teacher prediction of what the student will achieve at the end of Key Stage 4. All assessment grades predict what a student will achieve at the end of Key Stage 4. Students are set end of Key Stage 4 targets based on their Key Stage 2 SATs results. A student should be achieving or exceeding this grade throughout their time at HGAED to ensure they achieve the best results.

Key Stage 3

In Key Stage 3 students sit termly written assessments in every subject. These tests are written centrally by the Harris Federation and test a student’s understanding of the content and skills they have covered to date. The marks are sent to the Federation for standardising and the student receives an assessment grade (an AMLG grade), which predicts what the student would achieve at the end of Key Stage 4, should they study this subject.

Key Stage 4

In Key Stage 4 students sit written assessments every half term, in every subject. As we offer a wide variety of option subjects at Key Stage 4, the methods of assessment are more diverse than at Key Stage 3. In English, Maths and Science students sit centrally written Federation assessments which are standardised centrally and produce an AMLG for the end of Key Stage 4. Other subjects use a range of assessment material, most notably past and specimen examination papers. Students in Year 10 and 11 sit their half termly examinations in the school hall. This is to build their confidence in the environment in which they will sit their external examinations. The mock examination schedule is published in advance so that students get a real experience of what the external examination period will feel like. Students entitled to access arrangements for examinations have their provision for every internal examination.

Key Stage 5

Our Post 16 students are assessed regularly through essays and examination questions; these form a core part of Post 16 homework tasks. In addition, students sit Mock Examinations in the school hall. All of the papers are written centrally by the Federation and moderation takes place in each subject. Students receive a published examination timetable in advance and sometimes have study leave so that they are able independently to organise their revision time.
