How might the application of learning goals and success criteria support the process of documentation?
The process of assessment is not black and white. It’s not about shades of grey, but rather, about an understanding that each student has a spectrum of possibilities within them – a rainbow of ideas and potential.
Take a moment to breathe, slow down and reflect on the first part of this academic year.
