Assessment for Teachers

Assessment is the bread and butter of teachers’ work. If you’ve completed our cognitive science CPD courses, you will have a deep understanding of the importance of retrieval practice. This course looks at how retrieval practice and assessment are links and how you can can improve student retention and make accurate judgements of students’ knowledge and skill using assessment.

You will start by learning the principles of validity and reliability in assessment and how both formative and summative assessment should be used in the classroom. You will also explore the most impactful ways to give effective feedback based on the latest research. The course will go on to make the link between theory and practice by explaining different methods of assessing students in the classroom.

This course is designed for teachers in the first few years of their careers who are looking to develop their practice in assessment.

Thank you to Dawn Cox for writing this course.
