Making Assessment Work

The very idea of assessment is one that can strike terror into the hearts of teachers and pupils alike. This course is presented by a team of high profile, highly-rated speakers who are here to show you that assessment really can work, with the experience and ideas to prove it. Enjoyable, thought-provoking and practical, the day is packed with expert advice across a range of topics including:

- Assessment for Living

- Helping children celebrate mastery of curriculum content

- Using the freedom to be creatively driven

- Irresistible Assessment: practical strategies to boost engagement and success through assessment

Audience: Key Stage 1 and 2 Class Teachers, Curriculum Leaders, School Leaders, System Leaders

Objectives: It often seems that there™s a fog around assessment. When do we do it? How do we do it? And most importantly why? This stimulating and practical day course will leave you full of ideas to ensure that assessment is a tool rather than a hurdle “ a part of the learning itself and cast in a positive light to both teachers and pupils.
