Empowering Achievement: Exploring the Role of Assessment in Teaching and Learning
Examinations and qualifications, whether loved or loathed, play a crucial role in the field of education. However, it is important to acknowledge that not all assessments are created or recognised equally. In this session, Allen will explore the characteristics that define a good assessment, illustrating how well-designed qualifications and exams can positively impact learning outcomes while simultaneously fostering student development, comprehension, and motivation. Additionally, the presentation will underscore the vital role of teachers in cultivating a classroom environment where students perceive assessment as positive reflections of their growth, empowering students to proudly showcase their accomplishments to the global community and explore the opportunities that these achievements unlock. Finally, Allen will be joined by Carmen who will showcase how a proactive approach in building key recognition with important stakeholders can help elevate students’ learning outcomes to new heights.
