Balancing Learning and Assessment – two sides of the same coin

Our theme of balancing assessment and learning arises from current discussions about the role of assessment in learning. Questions like, “How much is enough assessment?” “Are we assessing the ‘right’ things?” “How do we empower our students in assessment?” are troubling educators. Come and hear educational experts – from classroom practitioners to researchers and educational agencies – give insights on how to address such questions.

Keynote speaker: Associate Professor Mary Hill, University of Auckland

Location: Auckland

Date:  23rd April, full day

The seminar is relevant for all education professionals interested in assessment – primary and secondary teachers, senior leaders, teacher educators, professional development providers, researchers, policy makers, and initial teacher education students.

Further information including registration details will be available as soon as possible on this page.

Regional NZAI meetings

We have held a number of regional NZAI meetings in schools around the country this year. Through these we offer a chance to meet with colleagues, find out about and discuss current assessment initiatives and ways in which our practices might be sharpened, and help develop a local network of educators interested in effective assessment.

The last meeting was in Auckland on December 3rd at Pt Chevalier School.

Michael Absolum talked about the new directions in education which have arisen from the recommendations by the Ministerial Advisory Group on Curriculum, Progress and Achievement, what’s new in assessment tools, new PLD priorities for 2020 and the implications for schools. 

The presentation notes, along with many others from previous national and regional seminars, can be found here in the Knowledge Centre.
