Assessment: It’s a whole-school approach

We all know that assessment is vital to children’s learning, particularly in mathematics. Assessment helps us to understand where students are at in their learning, plan where they need to go and how best to help them get there.

But we also know that assessment is one of the greatest pain points for primary teachers Australia-wide.

What if you could assess your students’ progress in a way that was quick and easy, and provided real, meaningful insights which you could use to tailor their learning to meet their individual needs?

This year’s assessment-themed conference will share ground-breaking assessment techniques which are quick and easy to implement and provide real, meaningful insights which you can use to tailor students’ learning on the spot.

With its power to transform the learning in your classroom, you’ll be amazed at how simple and effective assessment can be.
