This course looks at both formative and summative assessment and questions whether attempts to be (i) inclusive and (ii) SMART have been in any way successful. We will explore the defining learning characteristics of these populations of learners and how easy it has been for assessment schemas to drive curriculum when it should be the other way around. We will analyse in some detail, proven ipsative assessment schemas such as Routes for Learning and Mapping and Assessing Personal Progress. (MAPP).
The day will be a mix of power-point presentations, interspersed with whole and small group discussions.
Peter Imray is a freelance trainer, advisor and writer in the area of special educational needs with over 30 years teaching experience. His current interests centre on supporting schools to embed specifically written (not National Curriculum) curricula for learners of all ages with PMLD, SLD and ASD. Peter’s last book, written with Andrew Colley and entitled Inclusion is Dead: Long Live Inclusion, is a polemic against the dominant inclusive ideology of a common school and/or class and/or curriculum for those with SLD and PMLD. It was published by Routledge in May 2017. His new book, A Different View of Curriculum and Assessment: for learners with Profound, Complex and Severe Learning Disabilities is due to be published by Routledge sometime in 2023.
