Assessment plays a major role in how students learn, their motivation to learn, and how teachers teach. Assessment is embedded in the learning process, helping teachers to gain insight into what students understand, how they learn, and how they can be better served. Student learning is best supported when instruction and assessment are based on clear learning goals, and differentiated according to student learning needs.
This course module presents a comprehensive overview of tools and processes for the assessment, evaluation and reporting of student achievement. Assessment and evaluation practices must be fair, transparent and equitable for all students, and based on evidence of student learning.
