KS3 to KS5 Assessment Support resources for teachers

Supporting secondary teachers with assessment at KS3, KS4 and KS5

Whether you're looking for a ready-made assessment solution or support to create your own, Oxford is here to support you with secondary assessment from 11-18.

  • Working with experts to offer support and advice you can trust
  • Helping you create a whole-school approach to assessment
  • Flexible support for the new KS3 curriculum and GCSE 9–1 grades
  • Monitoring students' progress with auto-marked summative and formative assessments and reporting tools on Kerboodle
  • Targeted intervention and extension support, connecting assessment with next steps for teaching.

With the removal of National Curriculum levels in 2014, Oxford's latest range of KS3 resources provide you with support for rolling out a new 'life-after-levels' approach. New GCSE resources have been tailored to the new 9–1 GCSE specifications and grading.
