Presenters at Research Conference 2015 will share advances in the use of assessment for informed decision making by teachers, students, parents, school leaders, system managers and governments.
They will provide glimpses into the future of assessment through research focused on:
- New thinking - using assessment to identify starting points for action;
- New metrics - developing better ways of monitoring students’ long-term progress; and
- New technologies - transforming the ways we collect information for assessment.
Join with invited researchers from Australia and overseas in workshops, papers and panel discussions on:
- designing assessments to improve learning for children and young people
- assessing general capabilities such as ICT, creativity and problem solving
- using new technologies for teaching and assessment
- assessment issues for Indigenous students
