Event Description
Are the assessment systems in school effective at assessing learning? This sounds a silly question, but it is an uncomfortable truth that often, a school’s assessment systems are seen as a way of monitoring the effectiveness of teaching and learning rather than informing teachers of how well pupils are learning and where there are gaps to be filled.

This one-day course for subject and senior leaders will consider best practice in the use of assessment to enable mathematical learning. During the day, leaders will have the chance to reflect on the following; - what does making progress in mathematics mean? - what can and should be assessed? - how should we assess? - how does our mathematics curriculum support assessment? - how and when should we feedback to our learners?

This course is the second in a series of one-day courses. School may choose to attend one, two or all three, as part of their mathematics curriculum development work. Each course is bookable separately. Attending all three will give leaders a chance to deeply consider their mathematics curriculum.
Training objectives
Learning outcomes
By attending the course, participants will:

  • consider how well their assessment systems are aligned to the school curriculum

  • reflect on how well assessment informs next steps for learners across their school and consider why have increased clarity about best practice in the assessment of mathematics
