   Course Summary
This course is for assessors at the Primary level and focuses on taking the assessment findings forward into positive and effective recommendations for both students, parents and teachers.
   Course Detail

The key to enabling students move forward following a diagnostic assessment is that appropriate interventions are put in place based on the assessment outcomes. It could, therefore, be argued that the recommendations section of a report is the most important. This interactive day looks at converting the information obtained from a diagnostic assessment into practical recommendations which reflect the individual's needs at this level of study.

This course will take delegates through the process of interpreting the findings of the diagnostic assessment report to ensure the recommendations target the specific individual needs of the student. Assessors will have the opportunity to work through actual case studies to investigate how aspects of background information, the learner's profile and the conclusion provide the foundation to this process.  Working with colleagues they will explore the impact of the specific weaknesses in literacy and learning and study on managing the curriculum and classroom in primary school setting.  Taking into account the individual's strengths they will consider an appropriate response by making recommendations and offering suggestions for some strategies and resources that may be helpful in a variety of scenarios. Throughout delegates will be encouraged to share their own experiences and ideas.
