REASONS I’M A MEMBER OF THE TEAM:
I coordinate a core unit on Inclusive assessment practices which covers assessment for learning, designing assessment tasks and criteria sheets, and moderation.
I research in the fields of standards-based assessment, teachers’ assessment practices and moderation.
TITLE OF PRESENTATION: Developing Consistency in Teachers’ Judgements Practices
The presentation will draw on my current research into how teachers may develop shared understandings of achievement standards. The discussion will reflect on the value of professional conversations between teachers regarding the judgements that they have made on student work to support deeper understandings of the valued qualities that evidence a standard. How this form of professional conversation can lead to improved teaching and learning experiences will also be discussed. Finally I would like to consider the notion of front ending this professional conversation, that is, commencing the conversation of standards at the beginning of the teaching cycle, in particular through a process using annotations of previous student work or exemplars. This focussed professional conversation facilitates the explication of the qualities that teachers are valuing to differentiate between the standards, thus informing the design and delivery of quality assessment and learning activities.
