Year 7 Activate Pre-assessments
Pre-assessment tasks are designed to elicit students' understanding of prior concepts or scientific thinking skills that are needed before they can grasp the new concept. The tasks activate students' knowledge and show up gaps in knowledge or misconceptions that need to be addressed.
I and the department are very impressed with the design and the specific feedback and intervention activities for students.
Really delighted with the content! My headteacher observed me doing my first rethink session. She was absolutely delighted with the learning she saw taking place and is supportive of us investing in it. Much of the success of the mastery for all assessment has been in the bespoke response to the misconceptions so clearly pinpointed by the diagnostic test. The tasks quickly and effectively address these misconceptions and the extend tasks are a fabulous way to take most able pupils to a greater depth in the learning. The dramatic increase in the marks between the diagnostic and the retest are testament to the success of the reteaching interventions.
