Assessing Pupil Progress at Level 3
Criteria Introduction Practice Assessment Back-up Action
Select the mathematics they use in a wide range of classroom activities (Problem Solving)        
Try different approaches and find ways of overcoming
difficulties that arise when they are solving problems (Problem Solving)
Begin to organise their work and check results (Communicating)        
Discuss their mathematical work and begin to explain
their thinking (Communicating)
Use and interpret mathematical symbols and diagrams (Communicating)        
Understand a general statement by finding particular
examples that match it (Reasoning)
Review their work and reasoning (Reasoning)

Begin to use decimal notation in contexts such as money (Fractions)  

Decimal notation

Decimal notation

Derive associated division facts from known multiplication facts (Operations and the relationships between them)  

Begin to understand the role of ‘=’, the ‘equals’ sign (Operations and the relationships between them)        
Add and subtract two-digit numbers mentally (Mental Methods)  


Use mental recall of the 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 multiplication
tables (Mental Methods)

Use mental recall of addition and subtraction facts to 20 in solving problems involving larger numbers (Solving Numerical Problems)        
Solve whole number problems including those involving
multiplication or division that may give rise to remainders (Solving Numerical Problems)
Add and subtract three digit numbers using written method (Written Methods)  

Multiply and divide two digit numbers by 2, 3, 4 or 5 as well as 10 with whole number answers and remainders (Written Methods)        
Classify 3-D and 2-D shapes in various ways using mathematical properties such as reflective symmetry for 2-D shapes (Properties of Shape)      
Begin to recognise nets of familiar 3-D shapes, e.g. cube, cuboid, triangular prism, square-based pyramid (Properties of Shape)        
Recognise shapes in different orientations (Properties of Position and Movement)        
Reflect shapes, presented on a grid, in a vertical or horizontal mirror line (Properties of Position and Movement)        
Describe position and movement (Properties of Position and Movement)        
Use non-standard units and standard metric units of length, capacity and mass in a range of contexts (Measures)        
Use standard units of time (Measures)        
Use a wider range of measures (Measures)        
Gather information (Processing and Representing Data)  



Construct bar charts and pictograms, where the symbol represents a group of units (Processing and Representing Data)  

Use Venn and Carroll diagrams to record their sorting and classifying of information (Processing and Representing Data)  

Extract and interpret information presented in simple tables, lists, bar charts and pictograms (Interpreting Data)
