Assessment of Learning
Historically, the term assessment has tended to infer what we would now call ‘assessment of learning’, or summative assessment. As ‘summative’ implies, it tends to come at the end of a learning process, designated unit of work, or unit of inquiry, and serves the purpose of providing evidence to make judgements about students’ performance in relation to achievement standards. While one of the main roles of ‘assessment of learning’ is to produce evidence of student progression and achievement, the potential of ‘assessment of learning’ to be formative, and to provide information that can shape future learning and teaching should not be overlooked. This Learning Space puts ‘assessment of learning’ under the microscope and focuses on ensuring that the purposes, structure and use of ‘assessment of learning’ tools and items are clearly thought through, and that the evidence gathered serves usefully as a driver of student improvement. One hour of one-to-one coaching focused entirely on work generated by this learning space is included.
