Assessment within Curriculum for Wales – new resources

Read this post in Welsh

New resources designed to help practitioners explore assessment arrangements within Curriculum for Wales are now available on Hwb.

The resource ‘playlists’ are a suite of professional learning modules aimed at supporting practitioners, schools and clusters to develop classroom assessment practice.

The first tranche of the new playlists will focus on ‘Creating the Culture’ to enable evolution of assessment practice.  More playlists will be developed over the year to explore other aspects of assessment.

The playlists were developed by George MacBride, Honorary Research Fellow at Glasgow University who helped develop the CAMAU Workshops. They include references to academic studies and research that will help schools and settings in their thinking around the way assessment arrangements fit alongside their curriculum.

The materials, focusing on creating the culture for assessment, draw from the same principles as the recently-published Camau i’r Dyfodol practical materials. They provide a further lens for practitioners to consider and develop their assessment arrangements in Curriculum for Wales.

Bethan Moore, Crownbridge Special School said “The playlists are an appropriate and relevant resource the I can use within my school context and share with others across the cluster and beyond.  The idea is great to share effective  practice in order to secure professional learning and I believe it can promote communication between schools.”

Whilst the playlists are available here, they can also be found via the ‘Workshops and activities’ resource section on Hwb which features a range of supporting materials for curriculum and assessment.
