This subject is designed around the key assumption that assessment practice and policy is a central component in successful school leadership and instructional decision making. Participants will explore assessment and reporting frameworks that focus on improved pedagogy. Developments in assessment and reporting (Wilson et al., 2012; Griffin, McGaw & Care, 2012; Care, Griffin, Zhang & Hutchinson, 2014) will form a basis of the subject. These developments include consideration of how innovative methods of student assessment might be applied in the classroom; and how assessment data can be used at individual student-teacher level, at class-coordinator level, and at school leadership level. Participants therefore will be engaged in reviewing approaches to student assessment, teacher use of these assessment data to make instructional decisions, and leadership use of data to inform curriculum, staffing, and school policy related matters. The subject aligns with the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership National Professional Standard for Principals.
On successful completion of this subject, students should be able to:
A 2,500-word (equivalent) analysis of school data and its implications for instruction, teacher development and policy at a school level due third quarter of the teaching period 50%
A 2,500-word (equivalent) discussion of development of within-school assessment practices to reflect learner skills growth due end of semester 50%
This subject has a minimum hurdle requirement of 75% attendance at tutorials, seminars and workshops.
