Particularly maths - too many tests and far too hard. Have a look at the other forum thread on Rising Stars. I think they jumped too quickly to provide some assessment - we, unfortunately, jumped too quickly in with them.
It costs a fortune for what you get and I find the test results to be inaccurate. We have recently started to use them and the children have struggled with the amount of questions in each test and the wording of the questions. Yes, v difficult to get right. Mark scheme v rigid. Tending now to use as a pointer to areas that need more work and ignoring the score.
Maths mainly, there are over 60 questions per half-term test for each year group! Some chn performing worse towards the end of the test. We are looking at splitting the test over a week. Not one child managed to finish the test, most had eight or so pages left. It is absolutely not a true reflection of these kids.
One method to prove this is that I gave them the old SATs papers last month as a warm up and most got Level 4a, quite a few got level 5.
Whilst I appreciate that the new curriculum is more challenging, you cannot tell me that a child scoring Level 5 on the old one would drop to Below on the new one. The tests are flawed. I agree wholeheartedly, Welshlass.
Yet to mark in full, but far too long 3 maths papers! Some of my year 3s were on meltdown by end of week. Rushed through to cash in on the new curriculum without really waiting to see what it would look like in practice.
The Arithmetic paper in particular was horrible. Im also in year 3 and I also agree! My school did them too and they were laughably difficult. An hour for that reading paper? Luckily we were allowed to extend timings after an initial fuss.
But they were really tough and only my brightest have done well on them. And so on in that vein a Rising Stars account did invite members to give feedback via their customer care e-mail and justifying their work, linking to the following https: Does anyone else think it is extremely hard?

We did the optionals from rising stars. But over half the class came out below! So either they are too hard or the new curriculum is ridiculous in its expectations.january 1 faq for the rising stars grant application: /13 keystone stars rising stars is an initiative of pennsylvania’s office of child development and early learning to target financial resources to early care and education providers who are.
