Designing appropriate summative and formative assessment for semesterised teaching
What staff need(s) will the workshop meet?
I need to change the assessment/s in my module so that they are more suited to semesterised teaching.
I have some ideas about how the assessment/s could change, but I’d like to ensure alignment with the programme outcomes and assessment strategy.
I’d like to explore some formative assessment ideas to help students build knowledge and skills for the assessments.
Through this you will...
- use your module learning outcomes to develop assessments appropriate to semesterised teaching.
- consider the aims and context of assessment in your module and programme to ensure your assessment/s support employability and inclusivity.
- identify appropriate formative assessment opportunities which could be built into the module to give students the support they need to succeed.
Who would benefit from this workshop
This workshop develops skills for designing and planning constructively aligned, student-centred module assessments.
Through the workshop you will consider appropriate strategies for assessing learning in your subject.
Through discussion of possible assessment strategies, you will explore how students engage with your subject and what additional resources or support can help them progress in the subject.
Taking a student-centred approach to planning assessment respects learners’ needs and the support required to succeed in the module.
This workshop builds the skills to effectively use aspects of the module blueprint stage of the CAIeRO process.
