TITLE OF PRESENTATION:
Teachers’ Collaborative Assessment Practices in Support of Student Learning
A first focus of my work is on the concept of “co-regulation” of learning: co-regulation occurs when processes of student self-regulation are enhanced by sources of regulation in the learning context (i.e., by the structure of learning activities, by student interactions with teachers and peers, by the use of tools – in particular for formative assessment). Studies of co-regulation during writing activities in fifth and sixth-grade classrooms show how whole-class discussions and dyadic interactions influence the ways students draft and revise their texts.
A second focus is on teachers’ collaboration in the area of assessment. I approach this topic from a situated perspective that highlights the role of “joint enterprise” in a community of practice. An analytical framework has been developed for studying four facets of teacher collaboration: the dynamics, the scale, the object(s), and the aim(s) of collaboration. Findings from several studies show that teacher collaboration can enhance the coherence of assessment in support of student learning, but remains a fairly limited aspect of current assessment practice.
