Assessment Trusting Teachers’ Judgements In order to make sound professional judgements staff will need to: gather a wide range of evidence of progress and achievement (increase validity) share standards through dialogue and discussion (increase reliability) reflect on the implications for learning and teaching, reporting and planning for improvement (consider impact on learners and learning)
Assessment evidence Examples might include : an account of what pupils in response to a particular experience as a video or audio clip; and the criteria used to evaluate the evidence; and notes about features of performance and how a judgement was arrived at what pupils in response to questions or experiences; and the criteria or marking scheme used to evaluate the; and notes about its features of and how a judgement about strengths and development needs was arrived at a photograph or drawing of what pupils as part of a particular experience; and the criteria used to evaluate the product; and notes about its features of and how a judgement about strengths and development needs was arrived at a video of what pupils as part of a particular experience; and the criteria against which observations were made; and notes about its features of and how a judgement about strengths and development needs was arrived at said wrote made did
Assessment Range of evidence that could be generated from these activities? make/do/say/write How will I know they have learned? Consider skills progression and identify criteria related to the learning experiences
Ongoing Support Support teachers in making a continual shift in learning and teaching approaches Support for staff Working with Authorities to develop NAR material Using glow to share emerging practice and offer support Working across teams/directorates to ensure the best possible output
Next Steps Identify what is already in place to deliver your curriculum Work with experiences & outcomes within HWB ( including Responsibility of All), Technologies, Literacy & Numeracy to develop further Use experiences and outcomes in the classroom and provide feedback Continue to improve learning and teaching approaches through review, reflection and responding to the needs of learners.
Practitioners are the key to successful implementation of Curriculum for Excellence. The quality of learning and teaching in every setting – and the inspiration, challenge and enjoyment which can come from practitioners’ enthusiasm and commitment – will be critical to achieving our aspirations for all young people.” Building The Curriculum 1 (Page 1)
This is a different kind of development from anything we have had before. It depends on reflective professionals developing their own thinking and teaching, and working collaboratively. It does not depend on a rollout of a specific curriculum with teachers having to become familiar with completely new material.” CfE Management Board, June 2008
