Data Triangulation Workshops

Data Triangulation Workshops

Wednesday 01 January, 09:00 - Thursday 31 December, 17:00

These workshops provide practical guidance in how to develop a holistic approach to assessment throughout your school.

Effective evaluation and comparison of measures of ability, attainment and attitudes provides a deeper insight into students’ capabilities, learning barriers and comparative performance to allow you to personalise learning according to each individual’s needs.

We will demonstrate how the reports provided by the Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT4); Progress Test Series (PT Series) and Pupil Attitudes to Self and School (PASS) survey can be compared to provide actionable insight at a student, class and whole-school level.

Delegates will use our methodology, working with sample and their own data to identify students and groups who require specific support and interventions.

The teaching materials and presentations from the workshop will be provided to all delegates to enable them to repeat this training in their own schools.

Delegates will be expected to bring the following data from their school to the event in order to participate effectively in some of the activities:

  • CAT4 Group Report for Teachers
  • PT Series Reports
  • Combination Reports
  • PASS reports

Who should attend?

  • Principals, Deputy Principals, Heads of Assessment, Curriculum Co-ordinators
  • Whoever is responsible for ensuring the effective use of assessments within the school to improve teaching and learning

Why attend?
