Title: Recording achievement at Key Stage Four: an analysis of student perspectives
Authors: Galloway, Roger
Issue Date: 1997
Publisher: © Roger Galloway
Abstract: This research focuses on an exploratory study of student perspectives on Records of Achievement. The history of the RoA is briefly outlined, the literature surveyed, and a conceptual framework established for exploring student perspectives. The methodology of the study is described and evaluated. 400 students from Years 10 and 11 in four Case Study schools responded to a questionnaire (with opportunity for open-ended comments). RoA managers in the schools completed a document giving the context of the RoA in their particular schools. A range of student perspectives were identified, including positive views of summary processes, and negative approaches to self-assessment and outside-school activities. Case Study schools provided evidence of possible reasons for these perspectives, which were also supported by student comments. There were also differences in perspectives across gender and year groups.
