Universal CPD Module 10

Assessing for Success
Assessment for and of Learning (AfL) and (AoL) and the new GCSE

In this module, we will reflect on what constitutes best practice in assessing learning, including Assessment for and of Learning (AfL and AoL) and the new GCSE.

As the MFLPR2016 says: “Assessment is a central part of learning, and effective teachers gauge pupils’ understanding continuously, subtly adapting what they plan to do to ensure that the pace is maintained and that all pupils get the right blend of challenge and support in their teaching” (15.1).”

Successful assessment practices motivate and engage all learners and develop their self-efficacy.

“the vast majority of young people should be studying a language through to GCSE.”

Sir Ian Bauckham, 2023
