Biology - Internal Assessment Evidence Gathering Templates

Show: Biology Homepage

The purpose of the Internal Assessment Evidence Gathering template is to help teachers to identify evidence of student achievement for internally assessed standards that they have seen or heard within the teaching and learning programme. These templates do not signal a reduction in what is accepted for each grade, but rather a means of summarising evidence for reporting of achievement when more formal assessment has not been possible.

These templates must be viewed in conjunction with the assessment advice forwarded to schools to ensure that valid, credible and reliable assessment has occurred before the standard is awarded. This assessment advice is published here.
