Piecing together your student data puzzle - Seminar
Using assessment data well is vital to ensure every individual student achieves their full potential.
Each measure of attainment, ability and attitude to learning is valuable, but by combining the data, you can build a unique personal profile of each student. These powerful insights support you to personalise learning and inform teaching. During the seminar, we will discuss how you can use these measures to:
- Establish an accurate baseline - Discover practical guidance on how to reliably measure students’ cognitive and reasoning abilities. In particular how this can be used to identify students for gifted and talented programmes. You will also learn how to use this to inform curriculum planning and teaching.
- Identify reading and literacy support needs – Explore how a structured programme of standardized and benchmarked assessments supports schools in establishing students’ reading and comprehension skills in order to differentiate teaching and learning practices.
- Improve student engagement and wellbeing – Find out how whole-school attitudinal surveys provide a picture of student wellbeing at a student, class and whole school level. See how they support pastoral care teams to reveal unseen support needs and evaluate the impact of wellbeing interventions.
What you'll learn:
- An understanding of the data triangle of ability, attainment and attitudinal
- How to combine data to produce a picture of each individual student
- How to use assessment data to personalise teaching and learning to ensure every student reaches their full potential.
