Description Are you committed to the idea of assessment for learning, but unsure of how to put it into practice? This course is about making it happen in the classroom. It builds on recent research into assessment for learning, using an approach developed through our highly successful Active Assessment project. The course is extremely interactive and engaging, emphasising pupils’ thinking and talking through a broad range of quick, simple but highly effective strategies. This course is not about doing even more. It is about making small changes that have a big impact in the classroom.
