Unit rationale, description and aim

Assessment and assessment-related functions make up a significant proportion of a teacher's time.

This unit provides the context for pre-service teachers to develop a deep and critical understanding of major assessment concepts and gain relevant skills in the design of assessment tools and the use of assessment data to facilitate student learning. Assessment is viewed as an integral component of the process of learning. Pre-service teachers will be provided with opportunities through lectures, tutorials and workshops to develop their skills in gathering informal and formal information about students learning, analysing and interpreting such information and using it to facilitate and communicate informed decisions about assessment and learning.

This unit aims to assist pre-service teachers to develop relevant skills to design and manage assessment tasks and to make use of the generated data to help their students learn.
