(03) Using CEM baseline data to inform teaching and learning, (The Godolphin & Latymer School, London, 3 October 2017)

Description

This course aims to:
Take a view of baseline testing used as the basis for the MIDYIS, YELLIS and ALIS systems and how baseline data can be used in a range of practical ways. Using a case study approach, reference will be made to understanding and using whole school data, data to inform teaching and learning, and the using appropriate predictive data for target setting.
Note to delegates: We recommend that delegates bring their school’s recent baseline data (on their laptops) to enable opportunities for discussion with the Course Director.

This course is for:

Heads of Departments and Curriculum Managers.

Course outline:
