Review for Schools – A reflection on project based learning and skills based feedback

Curriculum Mapping Software

In recent months Academ have been working with Liverpool Boys secondary schools to provide skills based learning with Review. Assessment of students is tracked against five skills based outcomes.

Although Micheal Saxon admitted this project was a lot of hard work, Review made the job of assessing and providing feedback to students an ease. And Academ have now begun rolling out Review to five more high schools who hope to emulate this skills based learning at their schools.

Academ are extremely proud to be part of this journey. And we welcome any other schools who wish to implement skills based learning.
