Embedding Formative Assessment
Teaching staff at Middlewich High School have begun an exciting two-year project which is being run as part of a project funded and coordinated by the schools, students and teachers network (SSAT). The project involves Mr Taylor working with groups of colleagues to trial and evaluate different strategies to measure the learning of our students throughout lessons. This has shown extremely promising improvements in student learning in many other projects and we are delighted to have been chosen to participate in the project. At Middlewich High School we are passionate about ensuring all of our students make excellent progress and are made aware by their teachers of how to improve their performance. The project improves the way in which feedback from teachers can help students to improve their work and how pupils can become resources for their own learning and the learning of their peers.
Heading this project in 60 schools across the country is the Emeritus Professor of Educational Assessment at University College London, Dylan William. We are certain the project will improve student engagement and motivation within lessons and further improve the excellent strategies our staff have in place to track the progress of every student within their class. We hope to update you on the various successes we feel this project will bring for the teachers involved and most importantly for our students.
