Professor Dylan Wiliam

Wiliam, an expert on formative assessment, explains how it can transform pupil progress in learning, exploring the correlation between teacher quality and pupil achievement. He suggests that major improvements in pupil performance can only happen if teaching quality improves, which requires improving the quality of teachers already in the system: this is where formative assessment can help. 

He looks at how wider research is transforming our understanding of learning. He concludes that the best approach to using research is the best evidence synthesis, in which professional judgement is used to weigh evidence for its relevance to the classroom. He challenges both old and new orthodoxies that threaten to gain unmerited influence in schools. 

In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
