Assessing Grey Matters (Joint Practice Development of Everyday Work in the Classroom)

Principal focus of the project

The project focussed on reflecting on the role of practices among AS level classes of peer observations, interviews, and self-reflective learning to draw conclusions on the effectiveness of those practices to develop learners' education.

What is this about and what were the main findings?

The report explores a process for identifying assessment for learning practices which are most appropriate for supporting and developing a specific group of students' A level education. It identified AfL practices which students found helpful, which supported opportunities to work together, which helped them become more reflective, and ultimately improved the quality of their work.
