This course provides pre-service educators with opportunities to develop knowledge, skills and practices that will enable them to constructively assess student learning. It begins with an exploration of the main theoretical components of quality assessment informed by contemporary literature, investigates data analysis especially in relation to norm-referenced processes of assessment, and requires pre-service educators to demonstrate an advanced and integrated understanding of relevant reporting processes appropriate to context. It also engages prospective educators in scoping, designing and justifying an authentic, reliable and valid assessment tool relevant to student needs and professional context.
