This event will be held online.
The aim of this workshop is to explore some of the different remote assessment options available in a post-Covid world and investigate how established principles of assessment can guide the creation of innovative assessment types. High stakes and summative assessment will be covered, but the approach will focus more on formative and alternative forms, with an important role for the teacher during the assessment process. During the workshop, participants will look at different assessment scenarios and devise assessment instruments which are both a valid measure of candidate ability and promote greater learning. Participants will be encouraged to reflect on the kind of assessment they have used in their own classroom and online, and consider ways in which some of the challenges encountered in online assessment can be overcome. While practical online tools and platforms will be discussed, the emphasis will be on sharing ideas that teachers can use to implement sound assessment in their own remote learning context.
