This workshop will provide participants with best practice guidance on how to establish effective and bespoke Assessment and data tracking systems for schools. The key processes of establishing starting points, accurately assessing current performance, comparing progress with national expectations, and forensically identifying and eliminating underachievement will all be looked at in detail.
