Assessment of writing

Assessment of writing is an innovative programme providing support and guidance to help teachers make accurate, evidence-based assessments of writing across KS1 and KS2 and to establish appropriate expectations for each year group. The publication is an annual subscription which includes annotated samples of writing from Year 1 to Year6. Download a Year 4 example of the annotated children’s writing based on the teaching sequence I don’t believe it, Archie! by Andrew Norris. If you have a subscription to the Devon Education Services teaching sequences, you will already have access to this sequence.

The publication also includes complete samples of children’s writing from Year 1 to Year 6 assessed at the Expected and Greater Depth standards.

Our most recent addition – Assessment of writing progression provides two pieces of work from each child (one child per year group) and a supporting commentary detailing progress made from elicitation task to final outcome.
