Why Learning Intentions? The first active element of formative assessment in the classroom is the sharing of learning intentions with children . . . Without the learning intention, children are merely victims of the teachers whim. Unlocking Formative Assessment Shirley Clarke, 2001 Learning Intentions Planned for Knowledge/skills/understanding

Learning rather than doing Shared/displayed Child friendly Context/ Activity As a group, design a Poster showing why you should brush your teeth

Learning Intention 1. Persuade others to your point of view 2. Work well in groups Success Criteria Planni ng

Cycle Learning Intention s Input Success Criteria Learnin g Activity

Process Success Criteria Process success criteria summarise the key steps or ingredients the pupil needs in order to fulfil the learning intention ~ the main things to do, include or focus on. Shirley Clarke, 2001 Process Success Criteria provide a scaffold and focus for pupils while engaged in the activity

They are: * linked to the learning intention * Specific to an activity * discussed and agreed with children before they begin the activity Context/ Activity As a group, design a Poster showing why you

should brush your teeth Learning Intention 1. Persuade others to your point of view 2. Work well in groups Success Criteria

Use persuasive language Design clear visually attractive poster Use classroom rules for group work Workshop Think about an activity you do with your class Context/

Learnin g Activity Characteristics of Formative Feedback Feedback should provide: evidence on where they are now some understanding of how to close the gap the desired

goal Formative Feedback Is timely Relates to the focus of the learning Identifies where success has occurred Identifies where and how improvement can take place how Allows time for improvement

Is accessible to the pupil Types of Feedback Oral Feedback During the lesson/activity Personal and immediate Interactive (two-way) Written Feedback After the task Comments only Workshop Feedback A Strategy for Written

Feedback Find 2 successes against the success criteria Find the part of the work that has most scope for an immediate jump (not simply the worst part) Write a short prompt telling the child exactly what to do to this part of their work Provide time for them to read, process and respond to your prompt St. Patricks P S video clip Next steps-formative feedback Choose an activity eg literacy writing

Focus on one group of children at a time Any verbal feedback during lesson should be focussed on learning intention and success criteria Give immediate specific written feedback related to L I SC Give pupils time to make improvements P6 Assessment for Learning Personal Reflection Knowledge/experience of AfL Strategies Sharing the Learning

Criteria Learnin g Activity Reflecting about Learning Self-assessment: reflecting on WHAT has learnt Children use been success criteria to assess their own work prior to the teacher marking it

Self-evaluation: reflecting on HOW they are learning understanding themselves as learners Children use self-evaluation questions to prompt reflection during short plenary sessions Self Evaluation Questions What really made you think/did you find difficult while you were learning to..? (quote learning intention) What helped you( e.g. a friend, the

teacher, new equipment, a book, your own thinking) when something got tricky about learning to.? What do you need more help with about learning to? What are you most pleased with about learning to What have you learnt that is new about (quote learning intention)? How would you change this activity for another group/class who were learning to.? Next Steps-Reflecting on the

Learning Establish structures and routines to enable reflection Model the process Plan for reflection time Make it purposeful Dylan WiliamVideo on Questioning Questioning Research has shown that a question is asked every 72 seconds 38% of the questions are

answered by the teachers Only 8% encourage pupils to talk and think Questioning strategies Prior notice Extend the wait time Try no hands up Use think pair share Plan for children to ask a question * Write down what you think Next steps-Questioning As a staff reflect on using questioning to deepen

understanding and enhance participation Research and develop understanding eg. Blooms taxonomy Consider pupil led questioning P6 Assessment for Learning P6 Assessment for Learning Personal Personal Reflection Reflection Knowledge/experience of AfL Strategies
