“The new framework reflects the shift in focus of our education inspections from outcomes to the substance of education. It removes aspects of inspection that do not genuinely assess the quality of teacher training. This will help make sure ITE partnerships are focused on the things that have the greatest impact on trainees’ education, and ultimately, children and young people.”
Amanda Spielman, Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector on the changes to the inspection framework
“Feedback is one of the most, if not the most, important techniques for supporting learning. Giving effective feedback has also been found to be one of the most powerful education interventions to improve learning. According to Shank (2017), effective feedback positively affects learning outcomes and motivation to learn and can help build accurate schema (meaning a mental concept that organizes categories of information and the relationships between them) John Hattie (2011) found that giving feedback has an extremely large effect on learning, with an effect size… of 0.79… To make it even better, the effect of formative feedback (eg feedback for learning) is 0.90.”
