English Assessment and Feedback: Finally Making it Effective.

8 July | 3:30 pm - 4:15 pm

Studies have shown that secondary English assessment has less effect on students’ learning than those in mathematics.  However, English assessments are complex: they are timelier for students to sit, timelier for teachers to mark, and assess students on a range of skills against a complex rubric.  This session identifies the pitfalls of poorly implemented assessment and feedback, including challenges with both written and verbal feedback in secondary English. This talk provides unmissable solutions to ensure English assessment has a positive effect on student outcome, and methods to ensure assessments are effectively designed into the English curriculum. This talk is suited to Heads of Department, SLT (in charge of Curriculum Monitoring, or Teaching and Learning), and teachers aiming to improve their practice.
