Daniel Braithwaite | Head of Department (Science), Carey Baptist College
In this video, we chat with Daniel Braithwaite from Carey Baptist College about balancing formative and summative assessments in secondary education, as it relates to the strengthening of student learning outcomes and the time bind that teachers face.
Crediting formative assessment with making learning visible and avoiding the trappings of alphanumeric grades, Daniel discusses its strategic use including reshuffling of curriculum to carry it out, plus the need to determine how its insights can be used to inform next steps in the learner journey.
He also considers what role technology can play in assisting teachers to improve formative assessment quality and frequency, particularly in regards to streamlining marking, provision of feedback and harnessing data.
How can teachers incorporate more formative learning mechanisms and assessment into their classrooms and workflow, and make it truly actionable? Watch the episode to hear Daniel’s perspective.
