CAT4: Getting more from your data this term

Hosted Date 03/02/2021

 

In the second of our two-part CAT4 webinar series, Vikki Dodd, one of our Education Advisers delves deeper into the use of your CAT4 data. 

In particular, we explore: 

  • Looking beyond the mean and the importance of examining individual test battery data. 
  • Learning bias profiles, the verbal deficit and their implications for teaching and learning. 
  • How data analysis of cognitive strengths and weaknesses can be linked to classroom learning and planning. 
  • The importance of triangulating CAT4 and attainment data and how this can help fill the void left by missing statutory assessment data.
