Measuring Progress

Throughout the Secondary Plus course there’s a strong focus on assessment at all stages of the learning process, known as Assessment for Learning. This approach aims to encourage students to be active in the learning process and in their assessment of it. It allows students to think about their progress, assess where they are now, where they’re going next, and how best to get there. 

To encourage Assessment for Learning, each magazine clearly features the aims of lessons at the top of each spread, and some ‘Reflect’ features throughout, so that students can measure their learning against the aims. We also use our My Learning worksheets to encourage students to think about what they did well and what they still need to work. There is an example at the bottom of the page.  

Students are also evaluated on their class participation, class work, language skills and behaviour. Each of these aspects is monitored by the teacher, and parents are sent a written end of semester report on the child’s progress. There is an example report at the bottom of this page. 

Feedback can be requested from the teacher during the term by emailing information@britishcouncil.hu, as well. Parents can also talk to the teacher at the end of class but please bear in mind the teacher’s time may be limited. If you would like to talk to the teacher please tell the childcare team when you arrive to pick up your child.
