Content

This unit will focus on the functions and roles of assessment in the process of learning and how it may be used to positively support learning. The unit will examine the complexity of assessment from multiple contexts such as international and national testing as well as the practices within the classroom. Preservice teachers will review, refine and develop their knowledge and skills associated with being an assessment literate teacher, which will include, for example, to: critically reflect on the purposes and roles of diverse assessment strategies and their impacts on student learning processes as well as their influence on curriculum and pedagogical practices; understand how to record and represent students' assessment data; analyse and interpret diverse assessment data and how it informs learning and teaching; provide and analyse feedback on student learning; examine how to engage in classroom assessment practices in order to make consistent and comparable judgements of students' assessment tasks and the place of reporting on student learning. This unit draws upon professional experience placements undertaken earlier in the course for the coursework and assessment tasks.
