If you have just started the FDLT course in year 1 you will be starting to think more deeply about forms of assessment in education.
As well as the academic reading that you are doing you can explore assessment through the resources available on Teachers’ Media. There are a number of short videos exploring different aspects of assessment across all key stages. You can access them all by finding the key word ‘assessment’ in the ‘while school issues’ section along the top of the page.
You can also find some interesting information on the website of the Education Endowment Fund. If you look the theme ‘Feedback and Monitoring Pupil Progress‘ you will find several projects to follow up. These include feedback and mastery learning.
You may have read some of the work of Dylan Wiliam in your work so far. Several years ago he implemented some of his ideas in a secondary school and this was filmed for the two part series ‘The Classroom Experiment’. These can be accessed via YouTube here: episode 1 and episode 2.
