Assessment to support learning (not just tracking!).
This course will explore assessment practices that offer an enlightening and enabling view of all learners. Following the demise of national curriculum levels, we’ll look at how to embrace the opportunity to change how children are assessed. Rather than simply replacing the old structure with a new one, it focuses instead on enabling children to learn in meaningful ways.
This course is for practitioners who want to:
> develop strategies for assessing in each and every lesson,
> move away from practices that seek to define, label and rank children,
> explore how to use assessment to reduce inequity, allowing children to surprise you with what they can do!
> look at how tracking can support learning and be a tool for improvement.
Samantha Mawer (SLE for Primary Assessment) will lead this session of open thinking.
