Sharing information with teachers
With effective formative assessment being completed, little and often, by teachers, the SLT will have plenty of information to enable them to have the overview they will need. So how do we ensure that teachers have the information they need to impact on the teaching and learning?
What is important, firstly, is that it is manageable. Our eCourse "Making the Most of Classroom Monitor" will help, packed with hints and tips on how to build Classroom Monitor into classroom practice. You may also find the Making the Most of Classroom Monitor pages of use.
What is, also, evident from the schools that we have worked with over the last few years, is that removing the culture of levels helps to take a weight from the shoulders of teachers, moving their perception of assessment away from high stakes testing and towards the ongoing formative assessments which are so crucial in their classrooms.
