Event description

Description

Please join the Murdoch School of Education for a discussion of the Brightpath assessment and reporting software, as presented by Ian Anderson and Katrina Bonetti of the WA Primary Principals’ Association, and Brightpath researcher and facilitator Dr Sandy Heldsinger.

In this seminar, the presenters will share with you a ground-breaking project in educational assessment using the Brightpath assessment and reporting software, that is now operating in over 500 primary schools in Western Australia. You will hear examples of how teachers and school leaders are using the data they collect to inform their teaching and evaluate their school programs.

Brightpath is based on over a decade of pioneering research conducted by Murdoch University alumni A/Prof Stephen Humphry and Dr Sandy Heldsinger. The software records the results of assessments, with teachers comparing their students’ work with calibrated exemplars of typical classroom tasks. A scaled score is then generated from the teachers’ judgements.

Brightpath offers the ability to:

  • Track student growth over time
  • Compare year level performance
  • Compare school performance
