Assessment is at the heart of effective teaching and learning. We are now, thankfully, at a point nationally where it has been recognised that moving pupils through a curriculum regardless of the depth of their understanding is not helpful to their progress. Checking what pupils know, understand and can do needs to be a continuous process through listening, watching, questioning, written work and regular testing.
Targeted and well-managed marking, feedback and response are also key to moving learning on. Accurate marking and feedback is important to identifying gaps and ensuring that pupils are working at the right standards to meet national test and external exam criteria.
