Deeper, better conversations around individual children’s learning “The conversations around data are now far more meaningful.”
Hundreds of schools are using Insight, each with their own approach to teaching, learning, assessment and tracking.
We’ve been talking to schools to find out how they’ve approached moving away from assessment with levels, what sort of challenges they encountered and how they’ve been getting on with implementing their approaches in Insight.
We’ll be writing up these case studies over the next few months, and hope they serve as inspiration and a confidence boost, whatever your approach to assessment without levels.
Reducing assessment workload: “Insight has massively decreased our workload across school – for both teachers and assessment leads.”
Designing relevant, purposeful assessment: “Being able to take charge of our own assessment policies has meant that we feel confident and unified in our approach as a school. The most significant impact for our teachers has been that assessment now helps them with thinking about teaching and planning.”
A meaningful alternative to levels: “Teachers really enjoy taking along data to moderation meetings that lets them have ‘real person’ conversations about assessment.”
Customisable tracking that works: “We could approach assessment in any way we wanted, add our own objectives, assess them in any way we wanted and assess at any frequency.”
