NFER is presenting at this year’s researchEd Surrey. Coming to Farnham Heath End School on Saturday 19 October 2019, the theme of the event is ‘What does research looks like in the classroom/school?’.

There has been a welcome shift in the teaching profession amongst leaders and teachers, towards becoming evidence-informed, engaging with research and cognitive science, to improve practice, from school-wide initiatives to individual classroom practice.

At researchEd Surrey you will leave with evidence-informed strategies/theory to take straight back to your school and classroom. Come and join the research-informed movement at researchED Surrey.

NFER sessions and speakers below:

Session with Kiran Arora and Lorna Jones, Research Managers

Tell me what you don’t know – developing and using mathematics assessments for Key Stages 1 and 2

11:30 - 12:20, Zephaniah Room

In this session, Kiran and Lorna will use examples of fully trialled questions to demonstrate how questions can be used for formative and summative assessment, and to highlight how pupils’ responses can tell you about the quality of your assessments. Different question types will be discussed and, while the questions under scrutiny cover materials from key stages 1 and 2, the principles can be applied to assessment at all levels.

Session with Angela Hopkins, Head of Contracted Assessments and Research, and Frances Brill, Senior Research Manager

What makes a good, evidence-based assessment?

14:10 - 15:00, Femi Room

During this session, Frances and Angela will be sharing NFER’s ideas about what makes a good, evidence-based assessment and how it can support formative classroom practice. We’re going to be taking a look at some of the principles that underpin assessment, and also inviting participants to have a go at collaborating to develop some assessment questions.
