Before the Assessment Lead Programme, I thought I knew assessment, but I didn't. Put simply, without good assessment, you cannot have good teaching and learning.
The residential included excellent content with really knowledgeable people delivering the sessions; their enthusiasm was infectious. Excellent value!
Thank you so much for your work on the Assessment Lead Programme - it is superb. I love the content and form; you have created a fantastic course!
With their open, frank and enthusiastic demeanor, and their substantive, purposeful and clear explanations, the Evidence Based Education team has been able to move our institution forward by deepening our understanding of the ways in which assessment and data can be used to improve student learning.
The Assessment Lead Programme was easily one of the most difficult courses I have been on. However, I can tell you with 100% certainty that it has been the best. Thank you to the entire Evidence Based Education team, for your relentless drive towards revolutionising CPD and your work in leading the quest for evidence-based practice in education. Awesome.
“We have gone through ALP, and the programme has really opened my eyes. I’m now rereading the content for the third or fourth time, we're hoping to put more staff on future cohorts, and it is absolutely the right thing for all schools to do.”
Schools desperately need this kind of clear guidance to question the how and the what of their assessment practices.Lots of areas of my direct work will be affected by the Assessment Lead Programme, including pedagogy and supporting schools with learning, curriculum design and questioning their assessment practices.
We have completed the first three sections of the Assessment Lead Programme and are really enjoying it! It is really clear and I like the fact that it is drip feeding me the information through smaller sections. It is also great to have the ideas founded on reliable research and peer-reviewed articles.
