Comparing evidence from dialogue with evidence from hinge-point questions
Taking decisions about what to do next in the learning is at the centre of assessment for learning. Teachers need to collect evidence in order to do this.
Sometimes teachers will select hinge-point questions to do this and sometimes they will ask challenging questions that stimulate dialogue.
Look at the two ways of collecting evidence and decide which strategy you would have used in that scenario. Explain your choice in each case.
Summarise your findings briefly, making it clear which example(s) you’ve analysed, and post your summary in the comments section. Review and, if appropriate, comment on one or two summaries written by other course participants.
