Description

The project was designed to recognise how assessment is an influential component of the teaching and learning activities in schools. In this project, assessment is defined as a process of collection of evidence about student learning to be used for a range of purposes. The project is a response to the identified need for a paradigmatic shift in assessment culture in the partner school for Year 7 students, attempting to manage the tension between learning improvement and measurement. The identified cultural shift is to move from traditional end-of-semester testing to one where everyday classroom events are recognised as authentic and sustainable data collection opportunities. The purpose of the project is to foster a deep learning culture in Year 7 to provide a sound foundation for the increased conceptual demands of the following years, and specifically, the senior years of schooling.
