New Assessment Exemplars have been uploaded to the National Assessment Resource. If you’ve not been on for a while login to see what’s new:
The Tranent teachers came together on Monday 25th October and held a CfE Assessment In-service as a cluster.
The morning began with a workshop activity on Building the Curriculum 5 and AifL, facilitated by myself. You can see the powerpoint I used below.
As part of this activity, the teachers summarised the key differences in BtC5 and then shared their top key difference in groups. You can see the full summaries below, but some of the emerging themes included:
- Engaging/involving pupils and parents in assessment
- Varitey of assessment approaches
- Assessing skills
- Moderation activity
- New National Qualifications
- The National Assessment Resource
After a coffee break, the teachers then had the opportunity to hear from David Cameron. David was as engaging and inspiring as always and really cut to the heart of what teachers and schools needed to do in order to implement Curriculum for Excellence.
You can see David’s presentation below:
A huge thank you to all involved in the morning!
