This subject is designed around the key assumption that assessment leadership is a critical pre-cursor for successful school leadership and instructional decision making. Participants will explore assessment and reporting frameworks that focus on improved pedagogy. Important developments in assessment and reporting (Wilson et al., 2012; Hattie, 2011 and Griffin, McGaw and Care, 2012) will form a basis of the subject. Participants will be engaged in practical exercises that address student assessment, teacher use of assessment data to make instructional decisions and how educational leaders use the data to inform curriculum, staffing and organisational policy related matters at school level and higher levels. School leaders will examine ways of dealing with data and new forms of assessment. Students will explore the importance of developing data driven and evidence based decision and policy formulations. The subject aligns with the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership National Professional Standard for Principals and considers theory and practice that guide self reflection, self improvement and self development.
