Digital diagnostic assessment - be smart about planning


This session focuses on how using digital diagnostic assessment tools can make planning for learning more specific to students’ needs. It draws on several studies which have shown how teacher planning has been impacted by such information. Online assessment tools can be used to provide diagnostic information about students’ thinking. One such tool is ‘Specific Mathematics Assessments that Reveal Thinking’ (SMART) tests. The SMART tests system includes individual student diagnoses and teaching advice consisting of potential student difficulties and how to address these. Findings suggest teachers and their students can benefit from access to developmental stages associated with learning specific concepts and the potential difficulties students may encounter.
