Description

Your assessment tasks may be designed to test knowledge and understanding, but how might we collect meaningful evidence of your students' critical thinking, creativity, ethical and intercultural capabilities?

In this full-day workshop we will:

  • Review a range of Assessment practices including task design, which incorporates questioning, thinking skills and interdisciplinary links.
  • Unpack the Achievement Standards to assist your planning of project-based learning and inquiry pedagogy.
  • Explore the SCSA Judging Standards resources with a General Capabilities lens.
  • Demonstrate how a range of assessment tasks, across interrelated Learning Areas, will enhance your classroom practice and the way you view the assessment and reporting cycle of student achievement and progress.
  • Connect, collaborate and share ideas to curate a shared online collection of Assessment tasks

The second part of this workshop allows planning time for teachers to create their own assessment tasks, suitable for their current students. Using content from the WA Curriculum, we will discover numerous links to real-world issues and challenges in your local area. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a popular focus for a growing number of teachers, as there are several authentic links to HASS, STEM and the General Capabilities, however, you are welcome to bring other ideas and resources that reflect your classroom planning.

Please BYOD (laptop or iPad) and prior to attending this workshop register your login details with SCSA 'Extranet' for access to the WA Curriculum Judging Standards Tool

This full-day includes Morning Tea, Lunch, workshop materials and exclusive access to online materials, including sample Assessment Tasks.
