Overview of the Course

‘Nothing that we do to, or for, our students is more important than our Assessment of their work and the feedback we give them on it. The results of our assessment influence our students for the rest of their lives and careers – fine if we get it right, but unthinkable if we get it wrong.’ Assessment lies at the heart of the learning experience: how learners are assessed shapes their understanding of the curriculum and determines their ability to progress. At the same time, assessment and feedback form a significant part of practitioners’ workloads and, with increased numbers, reduced budgets and higher learner expectations, continue to be a matter of concern for many institutions. In this course, teachers will explore the role of assessment in instruction. Participants will learn about the formative and summative assessment, the purposes and methods of assessment, assessment instruments and how to develop an assessment plan and timeline for a unit of study. Support will be provided to participants, through facilitation and the discussion forums, as they redefine the role of assessment in their classrooms.
