Dr Jill Willis from the QUT talks through some good questions to ask about your assessments during times of remote teaching:
Assessment is fair when a number of conditions are met. School leaders, teachers and systems can meet these conditions by asking themselves the following questions:
1. Have the most important things you want students to learn been made clear?
2. Has it been made clear what successful performance of these important things could look like for students?
3. Have students had the opportunity to learn these important things?
4. Have students had the opportunity to check that they understand what has been taught, and to adjust their learning before they are assessed?
5. Does the assessment enable students to demonstrate what they know?
6. Do the teachers who are making judgements have support to check their decision making is trustworthy, and comparable to judgements made by other teachers?
7. Are there ways to give students and their carers feedback on how the assessment results can inform future actions?
