About the course

The SSTUWA, in partnership with TLN in Melbourne, are pleased to offer this online learning opportunity for early career teachers in their first five years of teaching.

Assessment is the process of gathering, analysing and interpreting evidence about student performance. Formative assessment supports teachers to make informed and consistent judgements to improve student learning.  It is part of the daily practice of effective teachers.  It requires teachers to think beyond tests and exams as the main form of assessment.

In this session the presenter will explore what formative assessment looks like in the classroom, some of the techniques he uses and will outline how you can translate some of these techniques to your own classroom setting.

Delivery method: Live online event

The event will be one hour in duration and consist of live delivery of content at the specified time by a presenter and a host. You will also have an opportunity to interact with other participants and engage with the presenter online. Completing this course will contribute to one hour of professional learning and a certificate will be provided at the end of the session.
