Teachers TV programme - Education expert Professor Paul Black presents evidence to show that getting pupils to do the majority of the work in a classroom leads to significant school improvement. This programme explains what is meant by formative assessment and how it is applied in a Hertfordshire primary school.

The APP approach is straightforward. At regular intervals, which are planned to fit in with school assessment policy, teachers review pupils' work using APP guidelines to build a profile of their attainment. The information gained from the process allows teachers to:
analyse by AF the relative strengths and weaknesses of each pupil (pupils at levels 3–8)
assign each pupil an overall National Curriculum level for ICT
use this information to set curricular targets to strengthen pupils' learning and inform their own future teaching by making links to the relevant objectives from the renewed Framework.
