January 25 @ 4:00 pm - 5:45 pm

This session focuses on the principles of effective assessment, and how to respond to assessment outcomes.

What do your pupils with SEND need to learn? Where are the gaps that are holding them back? Do some pupils leave you feeling stumped?

This session focuses on the principles of effective assessment, and how to respond to assessment outcomes.

● What SEND-specific assessments are there?

Learning Outcomes:

● To look at tools and techniques for effective formative assessment.
