Event description

Description

Presenter: Chris Davison and Jaime Rodriguez
Dates: 30 August 2017
Times: 9am-4pm

Teacher assessment literacy is regarded as one of the most influential factors in improving student learning (Black & Wiliam, 1999; Hattie, 2008), in particular a teacher’s ability to collect, interpret and use a range of assessment information to monitor and evaluate learning needs, provide targeted feedback and help students set achievable goals.

This practical workshop will begin with a morning session which unpacks some of the key concepts underpinning assessment literacy and the development of an assessment for learning culture, and through videos and practical examples, help teachers see what they need to learn in order to develop their assessment literacy further. The afternoon will focus on a case study of a school which is re-thinking assessment processes to ensure they fulfil a formative purpose. This session will show how collaborative learning in used as a vehicle to build professional capital and promote a school culture that maximises student achievement. Practising what they preach, the presenters will help participants to evaluate their own assessment literacy and develop concrete and practical recommendations for action as a result of the day’s activities.
