Highway to help; the Assessment Lead Programme on the road!

 In Assessment, News

The Assessment Lead Programme is on the road! We will be hosting three residentials over the next ten months and you can find more information below:

Great assessment should be the servant of learning, not its master. It is a purposeful, manageable, efficient and effective tool, and the skill of assessing is fundamental to good planning. After all, how can we know what to teach tomorrow if we do not know what has been understood today?

The Assessment Lead Programme residential course will encourage you to re-think your approach to assessment and support you to lead the improvement of assessment practice across your school. Over the course of the four days you will;

  • Understand why, when and how to assess
  • Understand key concepts in assessment and assessment as pedagogy
  • Use assessment more effectively to support curriculum planning and pedagogy
  • Be able to design powerful formative questions and quizzes that can be used during teaching to identify pupil misconceptions and learner needs
  • Design formative and summative assessments that are demonstrably reliable in supporting curriculum planning and tracking progress
