Assessment for Learning (AfL) is a key technique used by good teaching practitioners. Strategic questioning, peer feedback and student self-assessment is used by both the instructor and the learner to determine the learner’s understanding and how to achieve learning goals. Despite considerable efforts by the construction industry to work with schools, the effectiveness of these engagements is likely to be reduced without AfL.
Examples of how AfL has been used by Multiplex in its school outreach include:
These techniques and others have allowed Multiplex to review their methods and improve the effectiveness of its education programmes, winning praise from schools. It can even make less popular topics a powerful learning tool.
Tina, a year 5 teacher said:
“It is fantastic that an outside group can come in and get the children so fired up with maths and building! All of the children have individually expressed how much they enjoyed the sessions. Their only complaint was that they would love to have been spread out with even more mathematical thinking“.
