Assessment plans support your curriculum intent and impact planning. Organisations that are subject to inspections by OfSTED will need to work towards the Quality of Education judgement which is set out in the Education Inspection Framework. This requires education and training providers to set out their intent which is the framework of what will be delivered to learners. Using assessment plans, organisations are able to identify what will be delivered and why and then how they measure success.
Using assessment plan reviews, organisations are able to measure the curriculum impact and action plan improvements to teaching and learning.
Each assessment plan can have one or more review cycles. These are set up by the assessment plan administrator and they are normally conducted at the end of an academic cycle. Each outcome will have one or more measures that staff are allocated. They will add their findings and where necessary add actions to the programme action plan.
Each outcome can be mapped to other outcome sets and reports are available to see all of the mapping that has taken place. This is particularly helpful when mapping requirements such as SMSC – Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, PREVENT or extending maths and English.
Organisations that need to complete self assessment reports can use assessment plans to do this. They set out the objectives and outcomes and the identify who they measure their performance. Using the assessment plan review, they allocate measures to the self assessment team who are then able to add their findings and add actions to the quality improvement plan.
No. Developing an assessment plan is not time-consuming. It involves identifying what you intend to deliver (outcomes) and how you want to measure the impact (findings). Stedfast is collaborative so you can have multiple staff working on an assessment plan and programme review.
We can offer online a free online demo of Stedfast. They usually take around 30 minutes to run through the key features. We will also support you in getting started and we also provide ongoing, free support to the system administrator.
