NQT - Assessment


Timeline for Assessment Forms 

First
Assessment Report


The first assessment report for an NQT should make direct reference to the 'Standards for Teachers' (Sept 2012) standards which the NQT is demonstrating as being met, and to any standard which the NQT is demonstrating as not being met - there will be gaps; the purpose of this report is to show the NQT's progress, at this point in time, towards meeting all of the standards in full by the end of their induction.

Second
Assessment Report


The second assessment report for an NQT should make reference to any standards reported on in the first assessment report, and their continued progress (or otherwise) towards being met by the end of the NQT's induction.  The report should also make reference to any standard which was not reported on in the first assessment report, but which the NQT is now demonstrating as being met, and to any standard which the NQT is now demonstrating as not being met - there may still be gaps; the purpose of this report is to show the NQT's progress, at this point in time, towards meeting all of the standards by the end of their induction.

Final
Assessment Report


The final assessment report for an NQT should make reference to all Teaching Standards and how they are being demonstrated.


For Each Assessment Report

 

We suggest that assessment reports are written using the headings of the Standards for Teachers. 
We ask that each section of the report is written in paragraph (report) style.

A Quick Checklist - Completing the Assessment Form

Please check the following sections are complete before sending to the AB

In the standards section schools should:

Full Time /  Part Time

Ensure all Teachers Standards comments include a judgement indicating the current rate of progress towards each and the narratives should reflect the judgements being made.

Absences (nil absences should be recorded as 0).

Comments should be brief and pertinent but they should still include sufficient detail to inform the reader about the evidence used to support the judgements as mentioned above.

NQT Comments

Ensure comments on strengths and areas for development are qualified ie refer to the extent to which the NQT is meeting a specific standard or set of standards.

Is NQT Staying on for next assessment period

Use a range of evidence to inform judgements ie observations, samples of pupils work, scrutiny of planning/assessment period and planned support etc.

Names / dates complete in signatures section (even for electronic forms)

Ensure reports build on each other – it is a good idea to have previous report(s) to hand when preparing for assessment.
