Learning Assessment Pathways (LAPs)

A Primary Phase Toolkit – Making assessment practice informed, effective and manageable
By Ann O’Hara

Learning and Assessment Pathways (LAPs) is designed to assist primary school leaders as they work to secure cohesive and effective assessment practices that make a real difference to learning and outcomes. It recognises that school accountability for learning and progress stretches across many levels – to learners, parents/carers, teachers, leaders, governors, and external bodies.

This well-informed, practical resource will support collaborative evaluation and improvement because it:

  • Supports the review and development of assessment practices from a range of starting points, according to school priorities
  • Equips you with a range of audit tools designed during work with schools, in response to real enquiry paths
  • Informs decisions using national and international research from assessment experts, as well as contributions from schools
  • Stimulates focused improvement, as confirmed by schools who have evaluated and used the materials
  • Delivers practical strategies to help you communicate these changes to learners, parents/carers, teachers, leaders, governors and external bodies

By using LAPs, you will be able to secure cohesive and effective assessment practices that make a real difference to learning and outcomes.

“Really helped to focus the planning and clearly showed the developmental areas. It is a really good school self-evaluation tool.” Headteacher

“We used the Integrated Assessment Audit Tool to guide our audit of positives and negatives of our present assessment systems. It connected to the Teachers Standards and provided a focused tool for reflection and discussion across classroom practice.” Headteacher and senior leader

“We began with the Creating a Culture of High Expectations pathway…this work underlined that we now need to take provision to the ‘next level’ in terms of curriculum development, learning to learn, metacognition etc.”
