Event description

Description

Daisy Christodoulou is one of the UK's leading experts on assessment. Her work has significantly influenced practice in schools, supporting teachers in their development of approaches to assessment in light of the removal of national curriculum levels. Her book "Seven myths about education" addresses many of the myths teachers are led to believe and it is a call to empower educators in our profession. Her most recent offering "Making good progress?" tackles many of the issues teachers face around assessment. Daisy' evidence-based, clear approach gives teachers straight-forward, practical strategies to address key aspects of pedagogy. In her role as Director of Education for No More Marking, Dais is taking her work on improving assessment and reducing teacher workload even further with a focus on using comparative judgement effectively in schools.

The purpose this workshop is to look at the current practice and to present strategies which can lead to more effective assessment, reduce teacher workload and improve feedback. Daisy will be sharing her work on comparative judgement and demonstrating how the No More Marking software can support schools in assessing students’ work. There will also be the opportunity for teachers to try out comparative judgement and see how this works across key stages and subjects. Attendees will also be given the opportunity to take part in trialling comparative judgement in their own setting and becoming part of a much wider network of schools currently participating in the assessment revolution.
