The biggest step forward in maths-specific AFL I have seen in years. This is a real game changer for maths teachers (and students). A brilliant tool for assessing pupils' knowledge and misconceptions on topics.

 

Well done Mr Barton!

Joanne Amos's curator insight, November 2, 2013 2:51 AM

A fantastic resource to assess student learning and identify misunderstandings. 

Rhianna John's curator insight, June 2, 2014 10:36 PM

Diagnostic questions is a great resource designed to allow the teacher to get a quick, accurate feel for the students' understanding of a given concept. Based on students’ answers, the teacher can then direct their teaching accordingly, making diagnostic questions a very powerful tool in Assessment for Learning (AfL).

It's exciting to see universities embracing teaching methods other than lecture!  Lecture is one method, but so many of us don't learn that way.  The brain research is there to back it up.  Now it's time for everyone to get on board.
