17 ChApter 3 Assessment for learning: the start of the lesson Assessment comes in many different forms: so when does assessment really begin? Unfortunately, for many teachers (particularly those in highly datadriven schools) a data-based assessment has been made before a teacher can even put a face to a pupil’s name. I often refer to this as assessment before learning. Some schools, I would argue, rely too heavily on this form of initial assessment, often leading to a lack of flexibility. Data is only a fraction of a pupil’s learning history (and certainly, in my opinion, we should be cautious in using it to dictate a pupil’s future path); professional judgement should play a significant part.

Their initial and final responses can be stuck into their books as evidence of their progress and success in learning. If you wish, you can make this activity the bell work, but you must ensure that all 32 Assessment for learning: the start of the lesson pupils have the opportunity to answer the question initially. Once pupils have attempted the Big Question (only a couple of minutes to be spent on this), we move on to the first learning cycle or the starter activity. The activities so far are short: a couple of minutes for bell work, a minute or so for introducing the learning outcomes (don’t spend too long going through each success criteria with pupils – they only need a flavour at the start of the lesson – because learning outcomes and success criteria are workable statements which, by their nature, are to be returned to regularly throughout the lesson to allow pupils to assess their own progress) and two minutes for the Big Question, so maintaining the pace of the lesson is very important to drive learning.

Quotations also fall into this category and can be used in all subjects. For example, place a statement on the board and ask pupils to focus on: what it means, what they think the context is, what era they think it is from and whether they can relate it to everyday life. This may be a quotation from a piece of literature previously studied or a quotation from a figure in history. 25 Outstanding Assessment for Learning in the Classroom Other types of bell work Other more engaging or active bell work activities include posting images on the board for pupils to discuss with each other (rather than in isolation) or placing images or objects around the room and asking pupils to think, as they come in, about the subject specific connections or to place themselves by the image or object that they think is most interesting (with reverse bell work involving justification, which makes learning active).
