OVERCOMING LOST CLASSROOM TIME:
Identifying and Addressing gaps in attainment
The second topic in the Real World Learning virtual event series was focused on pupil assessment and progress at a time of disruptive and changeable teaching and learning practices.
We once again brought together a diverse mix of speakers, from edtech experts to Frog schools, for a packed agenda with presentations, interviews and live demonstrations.
The themes for the day included:
- Assessment beyond the classroom
- Identifying attainment gaps through remote learning
- ‘The kids are alright’ – Protecting wellbeing with stress-free assessment
- Raising attainment with an active support network
