CPD: Self-paced Online Learning

If you are looking to make better sense of the progression of children’s learning in numeracy as well as the types of strategies that they might use at different stages then the Highland Diagnostic Maths Assessment Training may be what you are looking for.

Target Audience:
While the primary audience is teachers, the course would also be suitable for PSAs.  It is not expected that PSAs undertake the assessments with pupils but it may be useful to support awareness and extend professional understanding of the strategies that pupils use and the progression of learning.

Suggested Access:
If possible, we suggest that you get together (virtually) with a group of individuals (from your school or otherwise) and arrange times to discuss the materials periodically, as you work through the course.  We feel that discussing the materials will allow you to get more out of the course.

The materials can, of course, be accessed independently if you prefer.

Duration and suggested schedule:
Part 1: 
This takes approximately 3 hours (the suggested times below are slightly longer as they include time for discussion with colleagues and a Review/Q&A session with a Development Officer).
We have put a suggested schedule below as we feel this will help people break the course up into manageable chunks.

You can see on Day 4 there is also an optional Q&A session with one of the development officers.

Part 2: This takes approximately 4 hours (the suggested times below are slightly longer as they include time for discussion with colleagues).
We have put a suggested schedule below as we feel this will help people break the course up into manageable chunks.

Again, there will be an optional Q&A session on Day 4.

If you undertake the course, we ask that you complete the pre-course questionnaire and the two post-course questionnaires (these are contained within the course).  We also request that you send your moderation recording sheets.  These aspects help us to evaluate the effectiveness of the course.  If you do not have a printer at home to print the recording sheet, a hand drawn version can be used.
