Fergusson, A. (2008) Teacher assessment and moderation, using the P scales. Invited Presentation presented to: Connection - Linking Teaching, Language and Learning, Perth, Australia, 17 - 18 March 2008.
This session will examine the potential functions and value of using performance descriptions developed in the UK (P scales). Participants will have an opportunity to become more familiar with the P scales and their range. The session will highlight the issues of identifying both linear (hierarchical) and lateral progress, using the P scales, as one part of the assessment process with an opportunity to use the P scales to make judgements on samples of pupil evidence. The importance of moderation will be considered and some principles for practice will be suggested
