"Really delighted with the content - exactly what I had pictured!"  Marianne Good, Gostforth Central Middle School

Formative assessment can improve teaching and learning - but needs fast and accurate information about student understanding. Tests tell you only what student remember - you need to know if there were specific concepts students struggled with. And whether they can 'apply' knowledge to unfamiliar situations - the yardstick of understanding at GCSE.

The Diagnostic Assessments pack does all this, using original, carefully designed multiple question quizzes. In 10-15 minutes, you can conduct the quiz, and have students review why they got answers wrong.  Pack 1 covers the 25 key concepts in a typical year 7 course (11-12 year olds).

Mastery & Reassess Diagnostic Quizzes The quizzes reveal whether students have grasped the concept (so you can move on) or whether the struggled with a part of it (so need a re-think). The multiple choice quizzes are also designed to flag up specific misconceptions. There are two quizzes per concept - so you test once, give students extra learning opportunities, and then re-assess to see if they got it -  mastery learning in action. Each quiz is short, targeting one concept with 6 questions: 4 Know and 2 Apply.  The questions are deliberately designed to reveal misconceptions and partial understanding so you can see which students need more learning. 

Student self-assessment The quizzes come with clear feedback - full explanations of why the correct answers are right and why the others are wrong.

The Government’s Educational Endowment Fund (EEF) concluded that Mastery is one of the few strategies where there is evidence that it can close the achievement gap between disadvantaged students and others. Mastery on average can produce an extra 5 months of learning gains every year. Mastery revolves around giving students accurate learning feedback  - the top strategy on the list.
