Qatar Workshop

Wednesday 27 September, 09:00 - 12:00

This seminar will be a comprehensive introduction to the way many international schools are using a combination of assessments that provide data on students’ ability, attainment and attitudes to learning in order to personalise  teaching and learning; improve academic performance and support whole school evaluation.

Paul Montague, GL Education’s International Consultant for the Middle East Region, will outline how the data can help schools to:

  • Measure the cognitive ability of each individual, including EAL students
  • Personalise and differentiate teaching within classrooms
  • Identify Gifted and SEN students, as well as underachievers
  • Support wellbeing initiatives

The discussion will draw on case study material from international schools and be supplemented by hands on analysis of sample data from GL Education’s Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT4), Progress Test Series, New Group Reading Test and Pupil Attitudes to Self and School survey.

By the end of the session participants will recognise the value of combining data on student ability and attitudes to understand what lies behind individual performance in the classroom and will know the next steps they need to take to access the appropriate assessments for their students.
