The purpose of high quality assessment is surely to support teachers to identify the next steps for student learning and plan and feedback to students accordingly. In fact, the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) suggests 'that the provision of high-quality feedback can lead to an average of eight additional months’ progress over the course of a year'. Thus, this course explores best practice in assessment and feedback, and examines the way in which formative and summative assessment can be used to powerful effect in English.

As well as teachers who are interested in improving their practice around assessment and feedback, this course is suitable for leaders and teachers who have responsibility for assessment in English and wish to explore how to improve their long-term approach. Time will be allocated for delegates to reflect on their departmental assessment and feedback strategy and to share good practice.
