Bringing data to life – practical steps to identify needs and support student achievement

During the workshop, designed for those who are new to GL’s assessments or who need a refresher, delegates will receive an overview of the CAT4 assessment and the types of questions within it.

There will be an opportunity to gain an understanding of the different report features and what the scores mean about each student. We will increase awareness of how CAT4 results can be used to identify key students and subsequently, use this to support student and school improvements.

The session will support delegates to obtain actionable insights from their own data. Delegates should come along with their own school data for this session.

We will also discuss how CAT4, NGRT & PT data can be used in combination, to identify underachievement.
