Church Assessment 2015

In 2014 we decided on four key concepts that we would like our children to gain through our
Church strand teaching.
They were:
- The Church is the people united with God
-We all have a role in the Church
-Formal roles within the Church
-The Mission of the Church

These four concepts will be the context of the Church strand teaching throughout the school.  We continue to teach the learning outcomes for the Religious Education curriculum at each year level in the context of these four concepts.

We agreed:

For year 1-3 the class teacher will decide the content of the assessment.  This will be entered on the assessment gathering file and the children will be marked 1= exposed, 2=achieving, 3=mastered. 

For years 4-8 we will take the same test but leave it open for the children's answers.  We would expect achievement to be shown mainly in the context of their year strand.  For children to show mastery it should be clear that their understanding of their year level work is linked to some of the main concepts we want them to understand (above).

These are our Second comparative results for the Church strand.  As we are tracking over three years we are tracking the year 1-6 cohorts of 2014:

Our results at this stage show that some groups have already exceeded their two year projection, over one year, Particularly at the Senior end of the School where they cover more concepts than the Juniors.  
We decided at our Strand Staff meeting for Church strand that we needed to moderate our marking and that making OTJ's in our Hubs will work and also supporting Beginning Teachers new to the programme. We also try to do our assessment straight after our school wide celebration of learning in Whanau groupings.
