Self Assessment – Art

Self assessment sheets detail the learning objectives that are taught within each given unit and subject. These objectives are separated into those required to meet the Expected Standard and those necessary to meet the Higher Standard. Separating the objectives in this way enables pupils to clearly identify what it is that they need to know in order to meet the expected or higher standard in each unit.


Key vocabulary relevant to each unit is also included in order to promote the use of Tier 3 vocabulary across the curriculum.
