Transform learning outcomes using cognitive abilities testing: full-day workshop

Date: Friday March 14, 2014

Venue: Tenby Schools, Selangor, Malaysia

Cost: GBP100

A standardised cognitive ability test can provide teachers with a wealth of information about their students’ academic ability and their preferred learning style. Used effectively, this information supports admissions processes, aids personalised learning, provides challenging yet achievable targets and allows analysis of value added.

This practical, hands-on workshop will provide guidance in best practice for both experienced users of the GL Education Group’s CAT4 cognitive ability test as well as those who are evaluating how to enhance their teaching effectiveness through the use of formative assessment.

The teaching challenges addressed by this workshop will include:

Personalising teaching to suit a student’s preferred learning style
Using ability scores and attainment data to set baselines and measure value add
Identifying gifted and talented, and SEN students
Accurately assessing the true potential of EAL students
Communicating targets effectively with parents and students
Having internationally recognised benchmarks to aid self-assessments and inspections
The workshop will be fast-paced, but with plenty of scope for interaction, incorporating:

Hands on, supported analysis of your CAT4 data (schools that haven’t previously used CAT4 will be offered 15 CAT4 Digital tests at no extra charge, to enable full participation in the workshop and provide actionable insights to take back to their schools)
Exploration of the relationship between a student’s verbal, non-verbal, quantitative and spatial abilities
Examples of integrating cognitive ability scores with whole school data
Case study of using CAT4 to identify potential in EAL students
Group discussion and sharing of experience.
Delivered by GL Education Group staff and practising International school teaching staff, you can expect to leave with practical actions to enhance the effectiveness of your school’s teaching.
