Assessing learning throughout your science lesson is the single most powerful way to ensure that all students make good progress. We will focus on secondary science, but most of these strategies may be applied to any subject and any age-group.

In this session you will explore:

  • A wide range of strategies for light-touch assessment for learning (rather than just assessment of learning).
  • How questioning may be used to make micro-adjustments through your teaching
  • How group talk may be used to promote deeper understanding

Berrymede Junior School is a ‘Good’ school which has been awarded the GPU education for Excellence 2013.
