If you follow us on social media, you may have seen by now that, on Tuesday, in partnership with the Chartered College of Teaching, we hosted a forum discussion entitled “What makes great assessment?”. Argyle Primary School in London was kind enough to host the event, whose aim was to bring much-needed focus and discussion to the importance of great assessment and how it can be used as a tool for learning. Our expert panel included:
- Professor Rob Coe, Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring, Durham University
- Dame Alison Peacock, Chartered College of Teaching
- David Weston, Teacher Development Trust
- Sarah Lee, Tarporley High School
- Daisy Christodoulou, ARK Multi Academy Trust
- Tim Oates CBE, Cambridge Assessment
Our very own Stuart Kime chaired the panel, and asked each member the following questions:
- What makes great assessment?
- What are the current and foreseeable assessment challenges and uncertainties facing educators?
- What action can the profession take to address these challenges?
We have now made live the ebook containing all of the panel’s answers, and you can download it here.
