FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT

With Emeritus Professor Dylan Wiliam

Formative Assessment with Emeritus Professor Dylan Wiliam is a highly interactive one-day conference . Participants will learn what formative assessment is, and isn’t, and which kinds of formative assessment have the greatest impact.

There is now a large, and growing, body of evidence that supporting teachers in their development of classroom formative assessment is the most cost-effective way of raising student achievement.  Participants will also learn about the key strategies and practical techniques of formative assessment, and will also find out how teachers can support each other in their development of formative assessment through the use of school-based, teacher-led learning communities.

OBJECTIVES

By attending, you will:

  • understand the difference between formative assessment and assessment for learning
  • appreciate why many approaches to formative assessment have been unsuccessful
  • learn how the five “key strategies” of formative assessment provide a uniquely powerful framework for improving learning in classrooms
  • find out how the associated practical techniques allow formative assessment to be made a reality in any classroom
  • know the most powerful ways of supporting colleagues as they develop their formative assessment practice
