Personalised learning: A differentiated approach to assessment and feedback — WEA

Principal focus of the project

The project's objectives were to promote the use of evidence in teaching, use the Professional Standards for FE teachers for tutor self-assessment, and pilot peer visits to promote best practice. The project followed a rolling cycle of ‘reflect, do and then review’. Activities undertaken included: exploration of evidence-based practice, peer visits and feedback, JPD and action planning sessions, supportive conversations, and feedback from peer visits and planning sessions.

What is this about and what were the main findings?

Piloting peer visits for supported experiments was very beneficial to all partners and was reflected in Ofsted inspections. Tutors developed a clearer sense of the areas of practice they wished to improve as a result of the project.
