Assessment Literacy

31 oktober

Even the best-designed assessment system needs to be implemented thoughtfully, which requires that all users of assessment evidence have a certain degree of assessment literacy— an understanding of both the meanings and the consequences of educational assessments.

Participants will learn

  • what makes some assessments better than others,
  • why student progress measures are almost entirely useless,
  • why most tests will never produce useful diagnostic information on students,
  • and why most school assessment systems do not do the things they are intended to do.

The day is divided into four sections covering the following themes:

  • Quality in assessment
  • Assessment literacy
  • Assessment design
  • Evidence-centered design

Geschikt voor sectoren: S(B)O, PO, VO, MBO, HBO

Leadership for teacher learning

1 november, 9:00 – 12.30 uur 

There is now substantial evidence that there is a “knowing-doing” gap in education. The problem is not that we do not know how to improve schools. The problem is implementing what is known to work in more classrooms. This is why approaches based on “sharing good practice” have been
relatively ineffective. 

Teachers do not lack knowledge—rather they lack support in putting into
practice changes in what they do in their classrooms, and this requires time. This is a particular problem in education because almost everything that teachers do in classrooms benefits their students. We cannot therefore create extra time by stopping teachers doing bad things—they aren’t
doing any. The essence of effective teacher leadership is stopping people doing good things, to give them time to do even better things.

During this day Wiliam wil help school leaders get to grips with it takes to successfully implement formative assessment in their school.

Geschikt voor: schoolleiders PO, VO & MBO

Embedding formative assessment

1 november, 13:30 – 16:30 uur

There is now a large and growing evidence base that helping teachers develop their use of minute-to-minute and day-by-day assessment is one of, if not the most powerful ways to improve student
learning. However, adopting formative assessment, or assessment for learning as it is sometimes called, involves far more than adding a few “quick fixes” to teachers’ classroom repertoires. It involves a fundamental shift in focus, from what the teacher is putting into the process to what the students are getting out of it. Participants will learn about the five key strategies and practical techniques for implementing formative assessment.

Metacognition, motivation and self-regulated learning

2 november

The term “metacognition” refers to any knowledge that individuals have about their own learning processes. Although some researchers have suggested that metacognition includes self-regulated learning, there is now increasing agreement—amongst researchers at least—that it is more helpful to view metacognition as one of three components of self-regulated learning, with the other two being cognition (thinking) and motivation. 

This course will outline the main theories of self-regulated learning, and show how students’ capacity for self-regulated learning can be developed both indirectly (through the development of a supportive learning environment) and directly, through teacher modelling and by explicit teaching of: 

  • cognitive strategies (such as rehearsal, reviewing, retrieval practice and spaced practice),
  • metacognitive strategies (planning, deciding how to study, monitoring and regulating learning), and
  • social-emotional strategies (help seeking, self-efficacy development, and delaying gratification).

The course will also review briefly what kinds of approaches are likely to be most successful in different subjects, and for learners of different ages, and how self-regulated learning strategies can be integrated with cooperative and collaborative learning approaches.
