About the Webinar

This webinar will help senior leaders, subject leads and teachers to explore different assessment models in order to provide a more effective way to monitor and track student progression from September 2020.

The cancellation of exams this year due to covid-19 has meant that schools and colleges must use other evidence-based methods of student performance to help Ofqual determine a centre assessment grade.

For many teachers, this will mean an increase in workload. It will also open the door to unconscious bias and raise the question of how to ensure a uniform process across all schools and a level of standardisation. It is also unclear how covid-19 may affect exams moving forward.

In this webinar, Michael Chiles, Principal Examiner, school leader and author of The CRAFT of Assessment, will discuss how schools can take a more progressive, objective and holistic approach to measuring student performance beyond singular examinations. It will explore how to develop reliable, accurate and creative assessment strategies which can help schools plan their teaching and learning and fairly monitor student progression through the academic year.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding how to make assessments reflective, consistent, fair and representative of student’s level of knowledge, skills and ability.

  • Recognising the importance of a more holistic approach to assessments and avoiding unconscious bias.

  • Identifying how to use both qualitative and quantitative methods of assessment to ensure a coherent and consistent approach to student performance.

  • Using assessments to help develop teaching and learning practice and to support different levels of student ability and their ongoing development.

  • Implementing assessments methods that minimise extra workload and recognising the impact on both teacher and student wellbeing.
