Lenore Adie is Associate Professor in Teacher Education and Assessment. Her research focuses on these two interconnected strands of investigation, in particular the role of standards in assessment practices in initial teacher education, and in teacher judgement-making. In addition her work focuses on moderation processes as these contribute to supporting teachers' pedagogical practices and student learning, the enactment of assessment policy, the associated accountabilities and teachers’ and students’ assessment identities. Sociocultural theories of learning are utilised within her work to interpret this dynamic context. Current key projects include that incorporating the Graduate Teacher Performance Assessment; the ARC Linkage Project (LP180100046) Improving teacher assessment capability using scaled annotated exemplars of achievement standards in online moderation; and the role of standards in initial teacher education and professional experiences. Lenore has worked as a primary school teacher and in administration positions in state and private schools within Queensland, Australia.
