Reporting the evidence: what research can tell us about how assessment data is used

Featured Image

Katharine Bailey is Director of Policy here at CEM, and for many years she has been working with schools and governments in the UK and around the world, helping them to use assessment data for pupil and school improvement.

At the recent Schools North East’s Evidence-based Excellence event, Katharine shared some of the research she is involved with, focussing on how assessment data is reported and exploring how data can affect student outcomes.

Her presentation at the event centred on a major ongoing study involving over 37,000 children in more than 1,000 primary schools in England.

Results from this study show that the type of assessment data provided to teachers at the end of the school year, as well as cultural factors, levels of engagement, and assessment and data literacy can impact children’s outcomes.
