Teaching through the pandemic 2 – Gemma Scott
  • Published: 13/10/2020

Gemma Scott is Director of Maths at a large 11-18 comprehensive school in East Yorkshire. Restrictions to reduce virus transmission in schools limit teachers’ opportunity to assess student progress in many of the usual ways. Circulating the classroom to help individuals, and marking books, for example, are subject to new restrictions in most schools. Gemma discusses how her department have approached this, and what they are using in place of their usual assessment practices.
