Effective use of CAT4 and Progress Tests for impact in the classroom

Effective use of CAT4 and Progress Tests for impact in the classroom

Tuesday 03 October, 09:00 - 15:00

For schools using both CAT4 and Progress Test Series Assessments

This workshop runs in parallel with day 1 of the IPSEF conference and offers practical guidance on one of the themes of the conference – the effective use of assessment.

Separate registration is required for this workshop.

Aims:

Provide ideas on how your teaching team can use CAT4 and Progress Tests effectively.

“The most important thing is that understanding has to be with the teachers” - Tim Richardson, Head of Primary, Dubai International Academy.

  • Develop understanding of how assessment data & reports from CAT4 and Progress Tests can be used by:
    • senior leaders
    • class teachers
  • Initiate the use of the school’s own data to  create action plans to support teaching and learning

Outcomes:

  • Each school  will have “action plans” in development

This stream is aimed at schools who delivered CAT4 only in the academic year 2016/2017. If you are a new school and will also have data from September 2017 by the 3rd October, then you are also welcome to attend.
