There are far too many students failing to achieve what they plan for or what they expect to achieve – this is underachievement and can be reduced, prevented or even overcome. All schools experience underachievement.
A recently published book by Dr Leonard Restall identifies causes of underachievement that can be changed within the classroom and gives proven strategies to change the problem. It is based on research and 40 years of teaching experienced.

Our theme of balancing assessment and learning arises from current discussions about the role of assessment in learning. Questions like, 'How much is enough assessment?', 'Are we assessing the ‘right’ things?,' 'How do we empower our students in assessment?' are troubling educators. Hear educational experts, including classroom practitioners, give insights on how to address such questions.
Keynote speaker: Associate Professor Mary Hill, University of Auckland.
Date: 23 April 2020.
