Learning Together & Making a Difference


Summative Assessment

At Abbey Gates, we have worked hard to develop a robust assessment system with formal, summative assessments completed termly using NFER tests.


At certain points in the year, for specific subjects, teachers’ assessments may be supported by test scores.  In these instances, test data is translated into “standardised scores.” It is important to emphasise that this information is used to support teachers' day-to-day assessments against age-related expectations. Teachers will also use a range of other assessments alongside the NFER tests such as Accelerated Reader, Fluency assessments, end of unit tests.
