    • Welcome!

      Welcome to the first of a series of online learning modules relating to the effective implementation of the diagnostic assessments.

      This online learning module is currently being piloted by a series of schools and individuals who have expressed interest.  

      If you are on the pilot for this course, ensure you complete: 

      • The pre-training questionnaire before starting.
      • The post-training questionnaire at the end of Part 1.  This includes your results and analysis from the moderation activity.  Details of how to send a copy of your assessment recording sheet anonymously are provided in the post-training questionnaire.
      The link for the questionnaires should be available through your Head Teacher (if you are doing this as a whole school) or you may have been sent this personally.  It is also in the Pre-Course Questionnaire Section within the course contents.


      We hope you enjoy the course and find it useful.


    • Course learning outcomes

      By the end of this course you should have a better understanding of:

      • The stages of thinking that pupils move through in addition and subtraction (including their connection with Early Level through to the beginning of Third Level).
      • How to deliver the addition and subtraction diagnostic assessment.
      • How to record pupils' thinking during the diagnostic assessment.
      • How to score the diagnostic assessment including:
        • An overall level judgement
        • A second optional scoring system to measure smaller increments of progress if required
      • Identifying next steps based on the assessments.
      • Analysing the results of the assessments.

      It is also hoped that staff will gain a better understanding of the range of strategies that pupils use to solve addition and subtraction problems.

      Course was very easy to follow and complete. Most challenging part was finding where I had left off each time!
