Qualitative maths assessment and the creation of focused support plans, with a spotlight on the DANS.

Sarah Wedderburn

Click HERE to read the full description.

This webinar will discuss how qualitative maths assessments move away from a right/wrong answer and examine language, understanding and underlying skills so helping teachers to identify gaps in knowledge and prepare targeted support lessons. We will look at the Diagnostic Assessment of Numeracy Skills (DANS), a structured set of qualitative tests for students who have difficulties with maths at Key Stage One & Key Stage Two. The tests are interactive and use concrete resources which help teachers to observe the thought processes and vocabulary of their students, as well as their answers. The DANS assessment provides teachers with a clear map of the concepts that their students understand and highlights areas of weakness. It is designed to assist teachers with developing targeted lesson plans.
