Assessment and feedback

How do our teachers find out what students have learned? How do they use feedback to help students improve? How does assessment help them to adapt their teaching?

Finding out how much students have learned, and offering feedback or changing tack as a result, are central to effective teaching. This section looks at ways our teachers use assessment. It considers the approaches to feedback, the effects they have, and how teachers change their teaching based on students’ responses.
