Super 6 is the next step on from iterative testing. In many subjects we use this approach to again look at ensuring learning is well embedded by checking regularly. Super will differ slightly in some subjects in terms of when it occurs, yet the idea is the same. Pupils will be given 6 key questions about prior learning. 2 will focus on their current area of learning, 2 will focus on an area they recently completed and 2 will focus on an area of learning from a previous year or Key Stage. This helps teachers to track what pupils know and remember and ensures that the building blocks for future learning can be established.
End of unit quiz
We build on from the Super 6 questions when we revisit these at the end of the unit. Subject leaders have thought carefully about what they want children to know and remember and this is the basis of our Super 6 end of unit quiz. This allows teachers to track the progress that pupils make in a fun way. It also helps to inform misconceptions and gaps in learning that may need to be revisited.
Pupils will have the chance to demonstrate their understanding in preparation for their next unit of work.
Our UKS2 pupils use another excellent tool daily to look at misconceptions and to also ensure that learning is embedded. Why is this LBQ helpful? It provides the class teacher with in the moment assessment information data. This appears on screen as the pupils complete tasks so that clear modelling can take place if required. Not only this, but instant feedback is also provided on screen so that pupils can reflect and maintain a level of independence and pace to their learning. This diagnostic approach also means that collaborative working is encouraged, so that learners can work at their own level whilst cascading information. This approach has been very successful, and we have begun to use this approach across several subjects. Most importantly, our pupils love it! Here are some examples of the pupils using this tool.
We grow together, we learn together and we achieve together.
