2 Our approach OECD Paris What kind of creativity? Creative-mindedness What kind of ‘assessment’? For what purpose? Dispositions and habits, not skills Selecting the dispositions: validity + utility Allowing for progression: two layers Development: ‘strength’, ‘breadth’ and ‘depth’

6 What we learned OECD Paris Teachers  Found our conception was useful and had face validity  Were challenged to plan for creativity and reflection  Made time to use the tool  Were positive about using it Pupils  Learned new and useful language  Recognised how creative they were  Thought about how they could be more creative Challenges  Balancing comprehensiveness and utility  Getting the details right

7 What do we hope to achieve? OECD Paris Engage the broader research, policy and practice communities in further dialogue “We are being beaten with a rather large stick, with a Local Authority undergoing great change…With the new Ofsted [inspection] Framework looming and our old friend the 11+ [exams] ever present, it makes this project all the more vital in making staff reflect on how are we nurturing creativity and giving pupils access to their own armory of tools to ensure a love for learning and progress.” [Headteacher, South East England]
