Assessment for Learning

Our Back-to-Basics series focuses on the skills that underpin good quality classroom teaching. This INSET provides an essential guide to Assessment for Learning.

  • Embedding Assessment for Learning as a natural part of every lesson
  • Closing the gap and improving student performance
  • Adapting lessons to ensure progress for all learners

About this INSET

Assessment for Learning is, perhaps, the one piece of pedagogy every teacher knows about, but it can sometimes be a little misinterpreted, or even forgotten about. This INSET will provide a simple and practical guide to AfL so you can reintroduce it into your classroom and reinvigorate your teaching.

 Course content: 

  • What does AfL do, and who is it for?
  • Setting the environment for AfL
  • Exploring the importance of testing
  • Using a range of AfL activities 
  • Assessing the impact of your feedback
  • Adapting the lesson to ensure progress for all learners



The course is suitable for all managers, teachers and TAs.
