Using data to maximise student potential, Azerbaijan

The whole student view philosophy is based on the premise that each student has the ability to achieve, and that by triangulating various data types (ability, attainment and barriers to learning) across the data available, it is possible to maximise student attainment.

This free seminar will offer an introduction to the way many international schools are using a combination of assessments that provide data on students’ ability, attainment and attitudes to learning in order to personalise  teaching and learning; improve academic performance and support whole school evaluation.

Triangulating your data:  

Each measure of ability, attainment and attitudes to learning are 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. Plus, learn how to use this to inform curriculum planning and teaching. 
  • Identify gaps in learning – Explore how a structured programme of standardized and benchmarked assessments supports schools in identifying areas where students may have gaps in their learning.  Plus, learn how they measure yearly (or termly) progress and discover curriculum areas that need reinforcing. 
  • Improve student engagement and wellbeing – Find out how whole-school attitudinal surveys provide a picture of student wellbeing that helps identify any hidden barriers to learning. Plus, see how they can support pastoral care teams to reveal unseen support needs and evaluate the impact of wellbeing interventions. 

What you will take away: 

  • A clear understanding of the benefits of a “whole student view” to assessment
  • Understanding of the purpose and value of GL Education’s suite of assessments
  • An outline for a full assessment plan for the upcoming school year
  • Discovering how to tell a student's ‘Data story', by triangulating the data from these tools
  • The opportunity to have a free trial of one of our leading assessments
