FFT has joined with No More Marking Ltd to develop a new method for measuring and tracking pupil progress. The FFT Proof of Progress tests use comparative judgement to set a baseline in Year 7 with subsequent tests in Years 7 to 10 measuring progress in relation to other pupils nationally.
The tests are built with the new reformed English and Maths GCSEs in mind – they are open ended with no right or wrong answers reflecting the new emphasis on mathematical literacy and extended writing. They also use the new GCSE 9-1 scale to measure progress and set targets, vital in a life without levels where pupils will enter Year 7 with new KS2 scaled scores.
Following a successful pilot this year, we’re looking to increase the number of schools that we’re working with to 200-300. If you’re interested in using Proof of Progress, our next round of Year 7 tests will be starting this September. You can register your interest by visiting our Proof of Progress website
