How To Assess Numeracy To Improve Student Outcomes

Re-assessing Assessment

An amazing benefit of effective assessment is that it can actually motivate students to keep learning!

Can you imagine your students wanting to be assessed so they can ‘see’ their progress?

There are ways to assess students in mathematics so they don’t even know they are being ‘tested’….

BUT, there are also many assessment practices that can destroy a student’s willingness to engage with maths.

We all know differentiation is vital to effective learning in mathematics…

But, did you know that assessment is essential for differentiation to happen? 

We CAN make a positive difference to how children engage with mathematics IF we get assessment right.

This online course includes all the research and practical ideas on what makes assessment effective in mathematics.

So, if you are tired of the ‘usual’ assessments and ready for a change…?

Here’s what teachers have said after completing this course:

Thankyou for providing the means to ‘assess’ why, how and when to conduct assessment.  I personally experienced a paradigm shift on the how, what and why of assessment. I now better understand that assessment is to diagnose learning and inform both student progress and the effectiveness of one’s teaching practice.

Michael Neumann, Teacher, Kingdom Culture Christian School

I’ve really enjoyed working through the course. It’s given some interesting information and allowed me to reflect on my own practice. There are things I will change/implement straight away and other things like working with the grade and stage teams to plan instruction after looking at data.  

Matthew Cassidy, Teacher, St Matthews, Mudgee

I really enjoyed the course and have learned so many new things. I cannot wait to make maths more enjoyable for my students and to give them timely feedback to help them on their maths journey.
