  11. Redesigning Schooling: Collaboration between schools

    In this booklet, Chris Smith argues that if schools are to lead the way in redesigning schooling it is down to them to create and operate a truly collaborative culture enabled through networks. Assessing the evidence so far on the role of collaboration in education, Chris observes that the evidence indicates strongly (more so than may currently be realised) that it can be a powerful driver of school improvement. But to harness the as-yet-untapped potential schools will need to genuinely understand and leverage the structures, complexities and dynamics of the different types of collaboration and networking. To help schools do this, he explores the characteristics of networks, the critical role of collaboration in innovation and suggests a framework for collaboration.

  12. Redesigning Schooling: Principled assessment design

    In this challenging booklet, Dylan Wiliam argues forcefully that schools must develop their own way of assessing children’s progress. He guides us through a nuanced way of thinking about assessment that should underpin the design of any model: knowing the limitations of types of assessment and the impact these have on the inferences you make; defining what you will assess and the purpose for which you will use the data; how you will collect, share and record it; and, critically, how you can design assessment systems that first and foremost support teaching and learning. 'Good summative assessment requires teachers to share a construct of quality, while good formative assessment requires helping students share the same construct of quality.'
