Assessment Academy

These summer talks, organised by Evidence Based Education, are open to all but coincide with the very first Assessment Academy Assessment Lead Training Residential. Assessment Academy is an initiative designed to bridge the gap between assessment theory and effective classroom practice.

We have developed Assessment Academy because reviews of initial teacher training and teacher education find that assessment is an area where teachers are not being adequately trained – yet there seems to be an unjustified assumption at large that assessment is a natural intuitive skill possessed by all teachers. We’ve set out to help schools harness the power of assessment as a tool for learning.

Assessment Academy offers a practical training programme to enable and support school Assessment Leads in developing an integrated and highly effective school assessment framework that promotes learning and great teaching. We train school Assessment Leads in the foundations of good assessment practice and how to design, implement and analyse assessments in any subject and phase of school. Those Assessment Leads then support teachers within school to conduct great assessments with confidence and make better use of their time by assessing purposefully and enabling responsive teaching.
