Description

Enhancing teacher assessment literacy to improve student literacy: From principles to practice
Presenter: Professor Chris Davison

Dates: 23 August 2018
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 applying the principles to improve student literacy levels across the curriculum. . Practising what is preached, the presenter 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.
