Secondary Assessment - Formative Assessment

Description

Formative assessment is increasingly seen as underpinning effective teaching and learning.

In this programme, Paul Black and Chris Harrison, authors of the influential pamphlet Working Inside the Black Box, outline what they see as the key features of formative assessment. They focus on effective questioning, peer and self-assessment, feedback and marking.

At Lord Williams School in Oxfordshire, maths teacher Karen Vear and science teacher Jon Ryder helped Paul and Chris with their initial research.

This programme:

  • Gives a unique chance to hear Paul Black and Chris Harrison explain why they see formative assessment as key to raising standards
  • Allows the viewer to watch them teach and explain some of the strategies they have developed
  • Offers an opportunity to see how Karen and John use strategies such as open questioning and effective marking in their own classroom to enhance learning
