Killer points when interviewers ask how you raise standards, pick up slack, engage learners ect?

    I mention things like
    * Drill past papers
    * Focus on the mark scheme and how they can tackle this
    * I show what the exams are looking for
    * Put strong learners next to weak ones to pick up the slack
    * Group work
    * Assessment for learning like no-hands questioning and mini whiteboards

    The interviewers end up saying these points are average at best and drilling past papers and focusing on mark schemes is not the correct way to raise exam grades. So what is?

    Funny isn't it! They always ask these questions which require magic bullet answers. You would have thought that they were already doing what was required, or at least knew what was required I believe that the only real answer is to let you do your job of teaching without micromanagement interference and dictatorial policies.
    The unspoken answer to raise standards is to dump the students who are below the current average to another school.
