Tim Oates, CBE (Director of Assessment Research and Development at Cambridge Assessment)
||11 Nov 2016
The Tomlinson Centre
Hackney Learning Trust will be hosting a conference on Assessment Without Levels: Principles into Practice and as part of the conference, Tim Oates CBE (Director of Assessment Research and Development at Cambridge Assessment) will be delivering a keynote on ‘Breaking free of the gravitational pull of levels’ from 09:30 – 10:00.
His keynote will address the evidence for no longer using National Curriculum Levels and identify why some schools are finding it difficult to move away from levels and why some have re-invented them. Examining international evidence on on-going and summary assessment, the presentation will tie assessment practice strongly to pedagogic practice, as well as giving details of approaches which genuinely go ‘beyond Levels’.
This conference will also explore other key areas such as:
· developing approaches to assessment that foster independence and motivations
· best practice features of good assessment systems
· sharing learning of developing assessment systems related to moderation and accurate assessment
· sustaining and enhancing assessment for learning
· reporting to parents.
