To be able to share your child’s

IPC learning

Knowledge, Skills and Understanding

Tell a partner

something you KNOW,

something you ARE ABLE TO DO


something you UNDERSTAND

ipc learning goals
IPC Learning Goals

Knowledge To know…

Skills To be able to…

Understanding To understand ..


Data, information

Relatively simple

Knowing ‘that’, knowing ‘about’

Continually expanding

Knowledge explosion!


Practical, knowing ‘how to’

Take time to develop through practise and experience

Essence of many subjects: What scientists do...what historians do…

At the heart of every subject

Fewer key skills than ‘facts’




Complex relationship between knowledge and skills, developed over time

Do we ever truly understand something or do our knowledge and skills over time help us to develop an understanding?

How often to we ask if or say that we understand something? Should we be really ask ‘Do you/I know…?

Knowledge can be researched or taught by presentation

Skills must be taught practically and in context. Time intensive and need to be revisited

Understanding is facilitated rather than taught. Time is crucial.

assessing knowledge skills and understanding
Assessing Knowledge, Skills and Understanding

Knowledge is easily assessable by tests, check ups and quizzes.

Skills is difficult to assess out of context, no right/wrong. Skills need to be assessed more than once, as they are developmental.

Understanding is more complex. It is longer, multidimensional process. Can we ever truly assess understanding?

primary school assessment for learning
Primary SchoolAssessment for Learning

Assessment for Learning is….

¨…the process of seeking and interpreting evidence for use by learners and their teachers to decide where the learners are in their learning, where they need to go and how best to get there.¨

Assessment Reform Group (2002)

It’s good to tell her how high she has jumped.

(Assessment of Learning - Summative)

It’s much better to recognise the height and help her

to jump higher.

(Assessment for Learning – Formative)

Watch the jugglers in action.

Are they working at ‘Beginning’, ‘Developing’ or ‘Mastering’ level?

How do you know?

giving learning advice
Giving learning advice

Using the rubric to decide what advice you can give each other to help you move from ‘Beginning’ to ‘Developing’ or from ‘Developing’ to ‘Mastering’.

Skills based, over a milepost

Identifies key skills

Rubrics for teachers and children

Learning advice, to help children to improve their skills

for each identified key skill in each subject
For each identified key skill in each subject…

The scenarios are examples

of the skills in action, in the different subjects in the IPC units

It is an integral part of the IPC learning, NOT extra activities.

Geography Key Skill1.10

Be able to make maps and plans of real and imaginary places, using pictures and symbols

(Milepost 1: age 5-7 years, Primary 2 and 3)

where you will find the key skill being practised
Where you will find the key skill being practised

In Transport Geography Task 5, the children work together to make a class map to show all the routes the children take to school and to other places. The children decide on a colour scheme and any symbols they will use to produce their class map.

teachers rubric
Teachers’ Rubric

Details what the key skill will ‘look like’ in action and exactly how a child performs within each learning stage.




children s rubrics
Children’s Rubrics

Corresponds to and reflects the teachers’ rubric, written in ‘child-speak’.

I’m getting used to it

I’m getting better

I’m really getting it

Used to explain the key skill, success criteria and expectations in children’s language

Used to involve children in their learning and

assessment process, including target setting

Used before, during and after a learning task

learning advice
Learning Advice

Learning advice given for each key skill

How to progress from Beginning to Developing

How to progress from Developing to Mastering

For individual children/groups/class

For children at ‘Mastering’ level – used to

consolidate learning and to move to the next

learning stage





children’s rubrics

what evidence will you see of ipc assessment for learning
What evidence will you see of IPC Assessment for Learning?

Your children will be talking about their learning, not only what they are doing.

They will be able to talk about learning skills, some new and some consolidated.

Rubrics and other methods will be seen in their IPC books, with evidence of their IPC Assessment for Learning.

The IPC section of your child’s end of year report will include the letters B, D or M and a comments about their skill and knowledge learning.

Any questions or further clarification?
