Assessment in Science

Pupils are formally assessed in 3 ways: End of Topic Tests assess pupil Knowledge and Understanding. Pupils are given a test at the end of every 2 topics. cartoon-exam-22162286 Investigations assess pupil’s practical abilities and report writing skills. Pupils are given the opportunity to plan and design experiments; carry them out and record results; as well as draw valid conclusions and evaluate their experiment.
