The maths discussion we had today started by looking at how the curriculum, standards and numeracy framework line up.
Here is the cut up poster we put together.
We look at a gloss problems and worked in teams to mark these and identify the stages.
Some important things to remember:
-Gloss is a mental test. Students who can do gloss questions in a their head are working at a higher level. If students have given you the correct answer but are struggling to explain this is when you might use water.
-You can reword the problem to change the context if it is not relevant to the learners but not the change integrity of the question.
IKAN-Aims at Testing number knowledge
The benefits of this test is that it is quick, however we must remember that it has added pressures of time and recording pressure.
The box on the right in IKAN tell you more that the totals at bottom. Jo said that for her learners she gave them a chance to self correct the problems that they just made silly mistakes on so that they could focus their learning goals around real areas they need to work on.
Help students to see exactly where they are in a visual format. This means that can see their areas of strengths are areas that they may need to work on. By highlighting the standard and the students results by the second set of testing they can see their progress.
Todays workshop really helped me to understand the assessments better and discuss these with other teachers.
