"GOAL Formative Assessment" helps the class teacher to monitor both individual and class progress while also yielding diagnostic feedback that supports effective teaching, learning and target setting. As such, it provides effective assessment that impacts directly on ongoing teaching - plus a standardised basis for monitoring across the core curriculum (Literacy, Maths, Science and ICT). The Key Stage 2 tests are especially suitable for use with mixed-ability groups: they allow all pupils to show their strengths, yet motivate lower-ability children with confidence-building success. Attractively presented and pupil-friendly, each test is easy to administer to a whole class and only takes about 45 minutes. Pupils record their answers in the test booklet, and a simple-to-use diagnostic mark scheme allows the teacher to profile strengths and weaknesses. The Key Stage 2 Literacy test covers national curriculum levels 1-5 and is carefully matched to the Literacy Strategy and Programme of Study. The test makes for more secure and reliable teacher assessment throughout the Key Stage, and enables easy progress monitoring. It can also help to focus revision as end-of-Key-Stage tests approach. For each pupil, the test gives a national curriculum level (subdivided a-c), plus a standardised score and percentile. It also provides diagnostic profiles which pinpoint problem areas and individual strengths and weaknesses (by Word, Sentence and Text levels), and the broader skills of knowledge and understanding, comprehension and evaluation. The Specimen Set contains one copy each of the Test Booklet and Manual.
