Student Data Conference

Getting the most out of your data:
An interactive workshop to support schools in maximising the value they gain from the use of assessments.

Bromsgrove International School Thailand, Bangkok
Saturday 14th March
Following on from the FOBISIA Student Data Conference, GL Education is offering an interactive workshop to support schools who wish to deepen their understanding of the practical application of data to support the concepts discussed during the conference.

Aims of the session:
 Understand what a cognitive abilities test measures, and how the data can be used across different roles within a school (SMT, middle leaders, classroom teachers)
 Review standardised attainment assessments and how these can measure progress and provide feedback to learners
 Explore how attainment and aptitude data can be used together to identify underachievement, informing individual learning and whole school policies
 Provide an opportunity to share good practice of assessment policies across international schools.
The workshop will be structured around the use and comparison of data from the following GL Education assessments:
 Cognitive Abilities Test 4 (CAT4)
 Progress in Maths (PIM)
 Progress in English (PIE)
 New Group Reading Test (NGRT)

Attendees are asked to bring a class set of student data for each of these assessments to work with during the session. Schools that do not currently use some or all of these assessments will be provided with a complimentary set of tests, with which to assess a single class of their students. These tests will need to be administered in February, prior to the workshop; enabling delegates to fully participate in the hands-on analysis.
Delegates new to GL Education’s assessments will also be invited to a short introductory webinar prior to running the tests so that they are familiar with the administration process and can carry out the trial in an accurate and effective manner.

The workshop is aimed at:
 Colleagues who are already using the assessments who wish to broaden and deepen their understanding and use of the data
 Colleagues not currently using the assessments who wish to explore the potential benefits of the data in the context of their school and students
