What a great day of learning! It was pleasing to see all staff immerse themselves in the various workshops and the grade sharing time was incredibly inspiring! We are lucky to be in a school with so many passionate teachers who all are willing to share their innovative ideas.
A few key takeaways:
- KNOW THE CURRICULUM! This is absolutely essential in designing effective assessments across the KLAs
- KNOW YOUR STUDENTS! A deep knowledge of our students will ensure that we are challenging them at the right times for the right purpose, and supporting them to feel success
- Assessment is happening all the time. Every learning experience is an opportunity to gain an understanding of what your students can do and what they know.
- Students need to feel successful. Differentiated assessments that are challenging for all students are a way of ensuring students do not lose confidence in themselves nor their learning.
