New KS2 history diagnostic assessment task on Mayan society

Those of you who have been using the highly popular KS2 history assessment diagnostic tasks will be pleased to hear that a new addition to the collection is just being released in draft form and is being trialled in schools.Pupils are given a coloured A4 sheet with three carefully chosen images showing features of Mayan society. using htese images, AND their won knowledge pupils have to answer a sharply-focused question . Using a detailed levels of response markscheme ( also ready for trialling) teachers can make judgements about performance on this task against national expectations. This is only one facet of achievement , of course, but it does indicate what pupils can and cannot do in relation to one of the key historical concepts and at a particular stage in their history education. If you would like to see a sample ready to trail in the next academic year, I am more than happy to email copies to subscribers.
