Using the Levels of Progression
The UICT KS3 Levels of Progression should be used to inform you about your pupils’ progress and to help you to make holistic judgements about the levels at which your pupils are working. These are the bulleted statements that appear in the Levels of Progression Grid and are presented in columns from Level 1 to Level 7. The Levels of Progression are aligned to the Requirements (in the left-hand column) and are colour coded to help you to track progression.
The Levels of Progression describe the types and range of performance that pupils working at each level should demonstrate. When judging a pupil’s holistic level of UICT competence you should select the level statements which best fit the pupil’s work over a period of time. This judgement should be verified by careful comparison with those immediately above and below. Remember that Levels of Progression build successively on the knowledge, understanding and skills of lower levels which are, therefore, subsumed within them.
The Levels of Progression document can be found in Appendix 1.
