Learner Support

Maths and science meeting highlights 20190515

This session continued to explore the role of assessment in mathematics teaching and learning with a presentation by regular CoP participant Tracey Butchart, co-founder and director of Reflective Learning. Tracey’s work in maths education and research has revealed the importance for successful learning of involving learners actively in their own assessment activities; of diagnostic assessment coupled with detailed personalised feedback that guides learners towards mastery; and of developing learners’ understanding of their own learning behaviours and needs, so that they are able to ‘own’ their learning and to take responsibility for it.
