The Reading Teacher Assessment Frameworks (TAFs) are sets of ‘pupil can’ statements comprising overall standards in reading, from which teachers can assess their pupils against the expectations of the national curriculum at ‘working at the expected standard’.

The Assessing with Age-Related Texts (AART) is a framework to support identification of texts that offer appropriate challenge to underpin robust reading assessment. There are analyses of sample age-related texts for teachers that demonstrate end-of-year expectations.
