26 February 2019 | 12:00 - 12:30 | English | The Data Balancing Act

School leaders face a delicate balancing act between the expectations of authorities and parents for robust evidence of the effectiveness of their teaching with the increasing workload faced by teachers and their ability to quickly and reliably capture student data that is meaningful and usable.

  • How much data should schools be capturing?
  • How can schools ensure the data has an impact in the classroom?
  • How can schools reduce the burden on individual teachers?

The panel, comprising assessment experts and leading teaching practitioners, will discuss these topical questions and suggest pragmatic and effective ways to resolve this problem.
