Qatar Assessment and Data Workshop

Qatar Assessment and Data Workshop

Saturday 12 October, 09:00 - 14:30

A masterclass with Matthew Savage in partnership with COBIS

The best schools collect and use a triangulated dataset on every child. They make use of robust, standardised data on students’ aptitude, attainment and attitudes. This is how they are able to personalise teaching and learning.

In this masterclass we will explore this data triangle, focusing on the stories it tells – and in particular, how through smart and strategic interventions, we, as teachers, can change the endings. 

Come and learn about #themonalisaeffect, and how it can help catalyse and maximise both achievement and wellbeing for every student in your school.


Course outline:

  • #themonalisaeffect - digging for treasure on the student data road
  • Balancing the Car - improving achievement through aptitude and attainment data
  • What Lies Beneath - measuring and supporting student attitudes to learning
  • Student Stories - using student data profiles to change trajectories
  • How Mona Lisa Are You? - an interactive, team quiz
