1 Lectures | 05:48
Summative and formative assessment
In this section thought is given to the role of summative assessment in our classrooms. It is explained that this should spiral throughout our curriculum maps and that graduated student-speak process criteria should be shared with students beforehand. Thought is also given to timings, modelling, and access.

Pointing the way
Here we discuss the importance of learning intentions and offer a working explanation of aims and objectives. Learning intentions are the Cinderella aspect of AFL - the neglected relation that makes something magical happen when done well. The importance of graduated process criteria is discussed and tips are given about use of student-speak and visualisation of LIs. Tried and trusted techniques such as WALT/WILF/TBI are raised and suggestions are offered to avoid falling into the trap of having 'wallpaper objectives.' These include cloze-captioning, throwing in red herrings, and allowing for con-construction. A word is given also on modelling and mysteries. By the end of this session you will be ready to set up your learning so that you can assess learning later.

This chapter offers insight into the importance of rich questioning technique. We discuss managerial, recall, and analytical questions and explain why you should have a no-hands up policy (except for questions). Randomisation devices including playing cards and lollipops are discussed as are on the go techniques such as 1-20 and Doug Lemov's cold-calling. Methods are provided to ensure students cannot opt out at all and thought is given to waiting time with the promotion of think-pair-share and pose-pause-pounce-bounce. We also discuss why the reward for a good answer should always be a harder question.
