Designed for professional educators, this online unit of study provides an opportunity to develop an in-depth understanding of the purpose and importance of assessment for learning.
Highly relevant to modern educational practice and designed for direct application to contemporary educational contexts, the Assessment to Promote Learning unit is a response to the data-driven nature of the modern teaching and learning environment. Drawing from research and evidence to improve teaching and learning for all students, unit participants will enhance both their teaching and assessment practices by developing greater capabilities in evidence-based decision-making, effective assessment design and critical evaluation of new and existing assessment methods.
Postgraduate Non-Award Unit
The first unit in our Graduate Certificate of Education: Assessment of Student Learning also functions as a stand-alone, non-award professional development course.
Participants completing the Assessment to Promote Learning unit in this manner will receive a unit completion certificate from the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) and entitlement to academic credit, should they enrol in the Graduate Certificate of Education: Assessment of Student Learning course at ACER.
