Collaborative/Cooperative Learning involves groups of students working together to solve a problem, complete a task or create something. 

The process of analysing and evaluating information. 

Making adjustments to activities to suit the individual student’s needs.

Feedback is given by the teacher or peers and is designed to bring about an improvement in learner’s performance and achievement. It can be either formal or informal, oral or written, formative or summative, but overall it must provide the learner with specific advice on how to improve their performance. 

Formative assessment is ongoing assessment integrated with the teaching and learning process for the purpose of improving learning. It focuses on evaluating where students are at, offers feedback to the student, and guides lesson design and individual instruction. 

Learning outcomes describe what students must know and be able to do to satisfactorily complete a task or a unit of work, as specified in the learning program.

Metacognitive strategies refers to methods used to empower students to understand the way they learn. These strategies teach students to think about their own thinking and knowing when and how to use particular strategies for learning.  

Moderation is a vital part of the post-assessment process to ensure equity for all students.

It is designed to check and inform judgements made by teachers regarding student achievement.

For example, two teachers would mark a student’s piece of writing separately and then come together to compare how they have marked against the criteria and feedback given 

Assessment is an ongoing process of gathering, analysing and reflecting on evidence to make informed and consistent judgements to improve future student learning. 

The pedagogical framework is a set of guidelines that creates the structure around the philosophy of learning and teaching that underpins our teaching practice. Consistent and commonly shared, it enables teachers to evaluate and refine their practice, and supports them in the delivery of high-quality learning and teaching.

Pedagogy describes methods and principles of teaching. It is what teachers do in their classrooms and demonstrates how teachers can use specific teaching and learning strategies to engage students in intellectually challenging work .

Summative assessment evaluates student learning at the end of a learning segment (such as a unit) by comparing it against some standard or benchmark. Summative assessment occurs generally after learning, formative assessment during learning and diagnostic assessment before learning. Summative assessments have a high point value. Examples are ‘midterm’ and ‘end-of-term’ assessments as well as a final project at the end of the term.
