On Entry Assessment


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I've just been going through my children's results on the e-profile and they seem to achieve so much in the Autumn term. Next year I want to highlight achievment on entry to show the progress made in the Autumn term. We presently use Pips at the beginning of the year but I find it hard to link it to the early learning goals and use it as evidence in the profiles. I've also read somewhere on the NARA website that they aren't keen on us using Pips as evidence anymore. I just wondered what other approaches people use to assess the children's ability on entry?

The Profile!

 

Although I dont usually score anything other than the points 1-3 for each scale as I wait to see that the other points are maintained and that I have more evidence.

 

We are told to allow 7 weeks for settling.

PRofile or What eyfs stage they are at if in nursery. The NAA consider that as PIPS and the like are not based on observational assessment over time it is not a true assessment within the expectations of early years practice.

PIPS-Performance indicators based on tick list type assessment that produces lovely coloured graphs for the head to put on his wall xD I've told him I'll let the intake loose with a pack of felt pens on his office walls and that would be a more accurate indicator of their performance for the school development officer to view :o

we use the e-profile to assess them and enter the data as entry .we score them as they are we dont wait for things to be maintained as having them as part time we usually know the level they are working at.

We already have one boy (full time in sept) and two girls(not full time untill xmas) who are consistantly scoring up to seven in NLC, and scoring high in calculating.

We would put in this score at entry even if at the end they only move up the other two points as this is their true score.
