During the pandemic Mr. El Moudden, Teacher of Computer Sciences, was fascinated to understand more about online learning, and how it can be best delivered. He embarked on a school-based practitioner inquiry with the aim of evaluating the impact digital assessments were having on teaching and learning processes, as well as student outcomes.  

Mr. El Moudden has recently had articles published in two leading education publications, sharing his observations and conclusions with the teaching community.  

He writes, I’ve seen firsthand how digital assessment can deliver net positives when it comes to workload, workflows and assessment processes. The evidence of student performance improving through the use of digital assessments seems positive, though it’s still too early for conclusions – at least until more data is gathered.” 

The Teach Secondary article ‘Screen tests’ can be accessed here (p.46) and the feature in TES entitled ‘What our school learned from running digital exams’ can be accessed here.
