Assessment and Questioning
Students demonstrate and evaluate their understanding in a variety of ways. Quality feedback helps students move forward.
- Allow students time to respond.
- Assess student understanding through verbal and written means during the lesson.
- Monitor regularly as evidenced through box bubble feedback in exercise books and records kept in staff planner and department database.
- Ensure that students know the level/grade they are currently working at and how to improve.
- Utilise a questioning style which promotes student involvement and is used to evaluate understanding.
- Produce feedback which is detailed and accurate, and provides advice to allow students to progress.
- Regularly deploy Self- and Peer-assessment.
- Use technology to assess understanding, provide feedback, record and monitor progress as well as to generate targets.
- Spend significant time with both individuals and small groups.
- Adjust the lesson plan as a result of active monitoring.
- Create activities which encourage students to reflect on learning so that self-assessment and evaluation leads to student-generated targets.
- Ensure that students respond to written feedback systematically
