  • APIR Tool:
    • The framework covers a wide range of factors that can affect a young person's performance, outlook and behaviour, andthe workerselects those parts of the framework thathe or she feels is appropriate to the young person .Wherever possible , young people are encouraged to play a full part in completing and reviewing the results of the framework.

14. Functional Skills

  • Assessment will be based primarily on task-based scenario questions with a limited duration and delivered in a controlled environment. The assessments will use and reinforce skills-based, problem solving learning techniques.

15. Assessment

  • Assessment for learning develops learners' capacity for self-assessment so that they can become reflective and self-managing
  • Independent learners have the ability to seek out and gain new skills, new knowledge and new understandings. They are able to engage in self-reflection and to identify the next steps in their learning. Teachers should equip learners with the desire and the capacity to take charge of their learning through developing the skills of self-assessment.
  • Assessment for learning should recognise the full range of achievements of all learners
  • Assessment for learning should be used to enhance all learners' opportunities to learn in all areas of educational activity. It should enable all learners to achieve their best and to have their efforts recognised.
  • (QCA Website, 10 principles: Assessment of learning)

16. Assessment

  • We need students who own their learning to the extent that they can self-manage both their emotional and their cognitive responses to challenges, so that all their energies are spent on developing capability rather than disguising its absence.
