GREAT ASSESSMENT IN ACTION MASTERCLASS
Assessment is important because it drives so much of our instructional decision-making in schools. QELi is delighted to partner on this practical and thought-provoking masterclass, where Bron Ryrie Jones explores the big ideas in assessment that all teachers should know. With a focus on everyday practice, Bron explores the quality and difficulty models in assessment, describing how issues of reliability commonly impact teacher assessment. Teachers of all experience levels will leave this masterclass with the knowledge and strategies needed to meaningfully tweak, adapt and refine teacher-written assessments across the curriculum..
