Pupils are continually assessed in geography through teacher led questions, plug the gap starters and quizzes, to name a few. Feedback is given by staff, self and peer assessment, where pupils can reflect on their work and develop areas for improvement. Formal assessments are completed twice a year at key points. At KS3 these follow the format of multiple-choice questions and extended questions which assess pupils’ knowledge, understanding and skills. KS4 assessments are based on past and sample exam papers which endeavour to cover several topics, allowing students to gain a clear picture of the final exam. Practice questions are also used throughout the course to consolidate and refine knowledge and understanding.
