Assessing
Tracking
Children involved in their own learning
Does our approaches to
assessment
prove or
improve
children’s
learning, progress
and achievement ?
Tracking
Your analysis and intervention to help every
child make the best possible progress, based on
a range of assessment evidence.
Impact of systems and approaches
Underachievement is immediately challenged,
achievement is immediately celebrated.
Professional Dialogue
• What does CfE mean for you in your
establishment?
• What have been the major changes/
improvements for children so far?
• What is you plan to continue with
implementation?
Key messages – self evaluation
• Looking inwards, looking outwards, looking forwards
• Smart, streamlined coherent approach which tells
the story of the centre in a clear and evaluative way
• Don’t spend all your time on the process of gathering
and collating information
• Keep evidence proportionate, impact-based, focused
• Often the best sources of evidence are learning in
action and talking with young people and staff
• Discuss and moderate content, standards and
expectations within CfE levels at every opportunity
Key messages – strong practice is
often…
•
•
•
•
Precise, focused
Forensic in the analysis of children’s progress
Practice-based rather than just paper-based
Able to generate specific strengths and areas
for improvement, for example in relation to
‘active learning’
• Prioritises time and energy on learner
experiences and outcomes
What are some of the features of
excellence in centres?
• High quality leadership
• A community of learning
and learners
• Staff who listen to
children and act on what
they see and hear

One example: the 5 C’s
•
•
•
•
Control (is she in charge)
Clarity (is she sure of her ground)
Coherence (can I align my aspirations with hers)
Concern (does she understand the challenges I
face)
• Consistency (will she adopt the behaviours she
espouses?)
Learning leadership from children
It’s more fun to colour outside the lines
Ask ‘Why?’ until you understand.
Make up the rules as you go along.
It doesn’t matter who started it.
You sometimes have to take tests before you finish studying.
If you want a kitten, start out asking for a horse.
Keep knocking till someone opens the door.
You can’t ask to start over when your losing.
Excellence is the result of:
caring more than others think is wise;
risking more than others think is safe;
dreaming more than others think is practical; and
expecting more than others think is possible.
