A guide to help you run Assessing Primary Writing national assessment windows during partial school closures
If not all of your children are back in school early in the 2020-21 academic year, or not all at once, then we have some guidelines for making sure that they can still take part in Assessing Primary Writing.
However, please remember, the children can only take part in the Assessing Primary Writing national windows if they complete their work:
This is to ensure that the tasks are taken 'cold', in a standardised environment. The tasks, which will be released a week before the 'Writing Window', will consist of an image or text stimulus that will prompt the children to write.
Please see our advice below for how to deal with the following scenarios:
If most children complete their writing during the scheduled writing week, but a few are absent, then please administer the assessment with those absentees in the following week if possible, and upload the scanned image(s) as early as you can that week.
(However, if they are absent for much longer, then please refer to Section 3.)
