What is this strategy about?
Streamline your observations by designing your collections so you are looking in the same place every time for the data you need. Are you looking at the answers they give in lessons or the answers they write in their books?
Why is it important for teachers to collect data?
Collecting data allows teachers to track how well their students are performing. This data can be used to review and amend approaches to teaching.
How can you ensure that you see what each student is doing?
Standardise the visual field. If a group is practising something, have the pupils arranged so that you can see how the pupils are doing something and you won’t miss anyone.

Choose this strategy if you want to...
- Get the same accurate data every time you practice something
