‘... to recognise progress within a key stage, best-fit judgements could use the features of adjacent level descriptions to indicate whether a learner is working at the lower end, securely within, or at the top end of a broad National Curriculum Outcome/Level. Typically, a learner at the lower end of an Outcome/Level shows mainly characteristics of that Outcome/Level across a range of work, but may still have some characteristics of the previous Outcome/Level in some aspects of the work. A learner securely within the Outcome/Level demonstrates the characteristics of that Outcome/Level across a range of work. A learner at the top end of an Outcome/Level demonstrates clearly characteristics of that Outcome/Level across a range of work with some examples of characteristics of the next Outcome/Level. Special schools and mainstream schools can use such best-fit judgements to share information about individual learners, within and across schools.
At the end of a key stage, learners’ attainment must be reported in terms of the most appropriate whole Outcome/Level. All attainment at the lower end, securely within or at the top of an Outcome/Level should be recorded as being at that level.’

Learner profile for Cluster Moderation
Selected learner profiles for external moderation
Clusters were asked to submit the following evidence:
- one Level 4 learner profile from KS2 and one from KS3; and
Across the 3 Attainment Targets sufficient evidence should be included to:
The cluster group should satisfy itself that the evidence (learner’s work, commentary, task information and stimulus/context) is ‘sufficient’ to communicate its shared understanding of national curriculum standards. If this is the case, it should follow that the information will also be sufficient for the external moderators’ check and feedback.
