There is now a large and growing evidence base that helping teachers develop their use of minute-to-minute and day-by-day assessment is one of, if not the most powerful ways to improve student learning.
However, adopting formative assessment, or assessment for learning as it is sometimes called, involves far more than adding a few “quick fixes” to teachers’ classroom repertoires. It involves a fundamental shift in focus, from what the teacher is putting into the process to what the students are getting out of it.
In this session, participants will learn:
Why we need to increase educational achievement, what's been tried, and why it hasn't worked
Why formative assessment needs to be the priority for every school
What formative assessment is (and isn't)
Practical techniques for implementing formative assessment in classrooms
