Trialled and Tested: Embedding Formative Assessment

April 25, 2019

“Teaching should start from where the student is, not from where we would like them to be." says education professor Dylan Wiliam. In this episode of Trialled and Tested: Embedding Formative Assessment, we introduce how formative assessment strategies can be used in the classroom.

Dylan is the co-developer of a professional development programme, Embedding Formative Assessment, which supports teachers to use real-time knowledge of their pupils’ strengths and weaknesses to adapt their practice. An independent evaluation funded by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) recently found that pupils in schools following the programme made the equivalent of +2 months’ additional progress in their Attainment 8 GCSE score.

Find out more, as Evidence Based Education’s Jamie Scott spoke to some of the people behind the programme and its evaluation to find out what it is all about. Tune in to hear from:
