What counts as acceleration?











:






Reflecting on Data so far
Accelerated learning is when progress exceeds the time that has passed.  Therefore in 6  months if a student comprehension level  is double this it can be called accelerated learning. While some teachers may choose to look at acceleration term by term, I have instead analysed my data as a collection of that progress across the three terms.

While 5 out of the 7 target students have indeed made accelerated progress, It has not been consistent across the whole group.  
Two have dropped back over that time and while continuing to work with the whole group I will also work closely with these students, getting them to be part of a learning discussion about their results and use this collectively with them to re focus their learning by initially setting goals for term 4.

  1. This is so encouraging Adrienne. You have been doing such a fab job of sharing your practice with your own staff and with our CoL. It is great to have these moments when you pause and look at the data and realise the impact you have made.
