Better understand the judgment-making process

This workshop acknowledges students’ entitlement to valid, reliable, and fair judgments about the quality of their evidence of learning. The judgments that teachers make can affect student learning outcomes, influence students’ learning experiences, and impact on their future pathways, so it is both a professional and a moral imperative that teachers increase their assessment literacy in making judgments about evidence of student learning.

This 3.5-hour workshop is designed to help teachers better understand the judgment-making process so that they can make informed and evidenced-based decisions about student work, ensuring that assessment is transparent.
