Practical strategies, what do teachers need to do?

  • Seek and interpret evidence of existing learning and performance (especially through questioning)
  • Provide feedback to help learners understand the strengths and weaknesses in their current performance, the standards aimed for, and how they might improve
  • Provide opportunities for learners to improve their work
  • Develop learner's own capacity to understand standards and to self-assess using criteria and exemplars
  • These elements need to be planned as part of teaching
