Description Assessment plays a key role in raising standards of attainment. If schools are to be successful in closing the attainment gap it is crucial that assessment and profiling systems address the diverse language, literacy and learning needs of all its learners. This course draws on recent research, national and LA initiatives and teachers own practice to suggest an integrated and inclusive approach to EAL assessment. It provides opportunity for delegates to share good practice, discuss the issues and explore ways in which existing practices in relation to assessment, profiling, target setting and the monitoring of progress might be developed to be more culturally inclusive. Skills in using the QCA A Language in Common EAL assessment scale to make evaluative judgements will be developed through a number of case studies.
