REASONS I’M A MEMBER OF THE TEAM:
I have been working at school, district and national level in UK on assessment policy and practice continuously since 1982, which provides a rare overview of these developments, and three decades of practical experience.
TITLE OF PRESENTATION:
Two Steps Forward, One Step Back – Promoting Assessment to Support Learning
Student transition from elementary through to senior high schooling in their middle years presents interesting challenges for teachers, students and school systems. This coincides with a focus on cross-curricular learning skills. My current focus is on developing students’ digital learning portfolios to help bridge the middle-years’ gaps and to encourage students’ self-efficacy and ‘growth mindset’.
