Year 1 ECTs – September 2023 Cohort – March 2024 Update


This news page is for all Early Career Teachers who are started their ECF programme with Generate Teaching Hub in September 2023.

How can you use assessment and feedback to greatest effect?

As a teacher, identifying misconceptions is key to moving on the learning of your pupils. Once you’ve identified a misconception, your response is crucial in preventing further misconceptions.

Module 4 of the Teach First ECF Programme develops your understanding of how to plan and respond to pupil misconceptions. You will look at how to design effective questions which enable you to make valid informative inferences. You will also consider how to use pupil feedback to adapt and respond to their understanding and decide next steps.

So…what makes assessment effective? Have a look at the work of Rob Coe, who is the expert for this module. Remember, assessment needs to be driven by purpose – why are you asking what you are asking? What do you want to find out?

Your seminar will have a deeper focus on hinge questions and how you can use these effectively to identify misconceptions:

  • What common misconceptions have occurred in your classroom?
  • How did you address them?
  • Have considered common misconceptions in your planning?

Lots to think about!
