Professional Learning | Courses | Certified Educational Assessor
In the CEA course, educators develop and extend their understanding of valid and reliable assessments. They acquire the necessary skills to construct, analyse and evaluate assessment practices and enhance their critical and reflective thinking capability for application to their practice. Educators will also develop their leadership capacity in assessment and work collaboratively with colleagues to improve outcomes for students.
CEA participants develop evidence that could be used to meet the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers at the Highly Accomplished or Lead Teacher career stage.
The CEA course comprises five modules and a case study, with each module intended to improve expertise in different areas of assessment practice.
Each module provides eight hours of professional learning; six hours of face-to-face professional learning presented by experienced and qualified Prescient team members, and two hours of supporting activities to consolidate learning.

The case study comprises:
- a folio of 4,000 words
- a report of 1,500 - 2,000 words.
The folio includes the five assessment tasks completed for each of the CEA modules and key evidence used in conducting the case study.
