## 'Build-a-Mathematician' (BAM) Progress Tracker Sheets

Part of our new 'Assessing without (NC) levels' suite of assessment resources based on the Kangaroo Maths Mastery Indicators, BAM Progress Tracker Sheets are intended to be used alongside our schemes of work addressing the aims and content of the 2014 curriculum. They enable pupils to be part of the effective tracking of key conceptual indicators that underpin progression in mathematics and support the building a picture of a mathematician.

## 'Build-a-Mathematician' (BAM) Tasks

Brand new assessment tasks to support the process of building a picture of a mathematician. The tasks are ideal to consolidate intended learning, support deliberate practice sessions and/or use as homework tasks. The carefully crafted questions have been designed to assess fluency, reasoning, problem solving and a student's ability to apply their understanding. One question will always focus on a misconception. The first few examples are from Stages 7 and 8, and the full suite of tasks will be built over time.

## Levelopaedia

Okay, so it's a silly made up word, but we hope that these might prove useful. The Levelopaedia provides exemplifications and probing questions for each of the 'assessment criteria' for every National Curriculum level. This resource has been produced by the Gloucestershire Maths Advisory Team, and there is also an e-profile to help in the process of building a picture of what pupils can do in mathematics.
