What if there was a way to see these reports you have written as a means to an artefact end?
In this, the last episode in our series on assessment, I’m joined by special guest, Rachel Mac from Savvy Teachers is here to share her top tips and thoughts on the whole report writing process. From the purpose of reports to what to do when you have to talk about something negative and how you should structure them, Rachel has you covered.

Of course, we don’t stop there. With stories of practice from both us that touch on students and how they learn, policy and practice and much more, our conversation will show you how report writing can really dance all over those seven teacher standards!
