This is 56 different mini tests or assessments with GCSE levelling. These were created for two specific reasons. Firstly because generic test packages are expensive and generally rubbish and full or mistakes. Secondly, students do not like to do long tests constantly and it is often a poor use of class/lesson time.
These mini-tests are normally 5/6 quick questions that are designed to give a quick snapshot of understanding of a topic. They come with ANSWERS and students can mark themselves or each other in class. This relieves the pressure of constant marking and gives much more detailed feedback to teachers and students of strengths and weaknesses of different topics. As these are short and pupils can get instant feedback on their score they much much prefer them. These have been far more successful for me and has given me more valuable lesson time to teach and to work on progress. I still do longer assessments each term and tend to do one quick mini test every week.
I have also included a spreadsheet with actual data of what the data might look like if you use them. However, how you choose to mark or collect the data can obviously vary. I would often use conditional formatting to highlight scores which were below average or to find outliers. The file is set up to find any pupil who is below one standard deviation from the average. I found this an excellent marker to spot pupils who struggled with a particular topic and thus receive an intervention session.
