Planning for learning: formative assessment in science and mathematics NE710 / B21
Online, self-paced course. Participants can join and start this course at any time after the advertised date. Guided by experts in assessment for learning, you’ll plan to identify your learners’ thinking, clarify learning goals, and fine tune your teaching, so you are better able to progress your students’ understanding, both in and between lessons.
You’ll look at how to plan your teaching based on learners’ starting points, use success criteria, and develop your classroom questioning to adjust your teaching approach and respond to student learning. You’ll also look at medium-term planning and the benefits of working with colleagues as you change your practice.
Who is it for?
This course is for teachers, curriculum leaders, newly qualified teachers, trainee teachers and others involved in teaching science, engineering, technology, computing or mathematics. It’s suitable for educators working in primary, secondary or further education (ages 5-19 years).
To get the most out of this course, participants will need to be currently teaching a class of students. This course draws upon the key concepts from our Introducing assessment for learning course.
