Departmental Workshops - Structured professional development activities   effective AfL in mathematics

Effective AfL in Mathematics

AfL could form the basis of many hours of professional development.  This session focuses on AfL in the classroom, arguably the most important aspect: uncovering what students do and do not know/understand and using that knowledge to improve learning.  Although this session is designed for a two hour slot, you may decide to choose particular parts of it to suit the needs of your department and the time available. To help in this decision, the structure of the workshop is as follows:
  • Activity 1 asks teachers to examine assessment practice and categorise according to impact on learning
  • Activity 2 focuses on the characteristics of assessment which ensure impact on learning
  • Activity 3 looks at the art of using questions to identify understanding
  • Activity 4 asks teachers to plan for implementing the outcomes of the session.
