Assessment for Learning (AfL) is a practical classroom approach with a potentially positive impact on both learning and teaching.
This course sets out to introduce Assessment for Learning as a classroom tool, with the objective of helping participants find ways to apply it to their own classroom practice. This 6-module course will provide you with an opportunity to reflect on how you gather evidence about your students’ learning needs, before establishing a basic AfL framework for the classroom consisting of diagnostics, learning intentions and success criteria.
