The Primary Tools Decimal Assessment System has been designed first and foremost with children’s needs at heart. It is a complete assessment system for writing, reading and mathematics from year 1 to year 6 that includes Assessment Sheets, Next Steps Bookmarks and a powerful Tracking System.
The criteria are taken both from the 2015/2016 Interim Assessment Frameworks released in September 2015 and the National Curriculum for Reading (2014).
For Pupils and Parents
The system aims to inform pupils of the next steps needed in order to progress their reading. It is recommended that the Assessment Sheets are used alongside the Next Steps Bookmarks.
The system is also designed to be easily picked up by teachers. Recommended process is found in the sample here.
For School Leaders
The system also creates a Decimal Score that can be used for tracking and informing planning for the needs of your pupils. It is recommended that the free tracking system is used for this.
