Assessment for Learning
The Assessment for Learning website developed by Education Services Australia (ESA) provides web-based professional learning resources for teachers. Assessment theory and practical activities around the key strategies for formative assessment support teachers to develop effective classroom assessment.
There are eight professional learning modules on the website, each designed for use by individual teachers. The materials can also be adapted for use in teacher development workshops. The professional learning modules focus on:
- an introduction to assessment for learning
- learning intentions
- success criteria and rubrics
- effective teacher feedback
- strategic questioning
- peer feedback
- student self-assessment
- formative use of summative assessment.
Assessment for Learning DVDs and teacher reference text materials are also available for purchase from Curriculum Press.
