Webinar Recordings

This summer, we have hosted a series of webinars focusing on the issues facing schools as they plan for students to return following lockdown. Please find below recordings of our recent webinars.

June 2020

24 - 25

From the autumn term, schools using both CAT4 and FFT Aspire will be able to put their Year 7 CAT4 results into FFT Aspire to create a FFT benchmark for pupils at the end of KS4. Join us at this online workshop to find out how schools can use GL Assessment’s CAT4 and FFT Aspire together in September to support your Year 7 pupils.


In this webinar, Becky St John, Independent Assessment and Data Consultant and Trainer, discusses the challenges in pulling together and analysing data from many and diverse schools, such as the tension between autonomy and alignment, and between teacher assessment and test results. In the second part of the webinar, Vicky Merrick, Data Development Lead at Archway Learning Trust, talks about her central assessment framework, what it measures, how GL Assessment data has been used in triangulation with other data, and how it has helped the trust.
