As we welcome all children back to school, after an unprecedented near 6 months absence, accurately assessing their learning will underpin any and all activity to help the recovery process and to make sure children are in a position to catch up.
Diagnostic assessment gives teachers a nuanced understanding of children’s learning so that they can plan their teaching to match the needs of the class or their additional interventions to match the needs of smaller groups or individuals.
According to the Education Endowment Foundation: High-quality assessment is essential to great teaching, helping us understand what pupils have (or have not) learned. Targeted diagnostic assessments can support teachers to monitor pupils’ progress, particularly as they re-establish classroom routines and recover any learning loss.
