As part of the BLT’s conference and events programme for 2018/2019 we are honoured to welcome education expert Dylan Wiliam to Buckinghamshire in one of only 7 UK engagements Dylan has in place in 2018/2019.
Research continues to show that formative assessment strategies are one of the most effective methods for improving student learning.
When implemented properly, they empower students, significantly increase engagement, and shift classroom responsibility from teachers to their students so that the students themselves are required to play a far more active role in their learning journeys.
Yet for all of its benefits, formative assessment, or assessment for learning as it is sometimes called, is not a simple, quick-fix that can be easily be implemented by schools. It does instead require a fundamental shift in attitudes by both school leaders and teachers along with careful, considered and research-based training and implementation.
