NEQMAP workshop on Assessment for Learning
Application Submission Deadline: May 10, 2019 (Friday)
All teaching should involve continuous and ongoing assessment of student learning and feedback to students. This type of assessment, sometimes called school-based (SBA), classroom (CA), teacher assessment (TA) and formative assessment (FA), requires the integration of curriculum, pedagogy, and assessment. Formative assessment emphasizes the active role teachers have in curriculum and assessment decision-making, as well as applying various teaching approaches and methods in response to students’ need. These types of assessments for learning provide opportunities for teachers to continuously monitor and give feedback to improve students’ learning abilities
Please join us in Bandung, Indonesia from 24 to 27 June 2019 for a four-day workshop on “School-based, Classroom, Teacher and Formative Assessment – Assessment for Learning”. Are school-based, classroom, teacher and formative assessment different words for the same things? How might we define and distinguish between school-based, classroom, teacher and formative assessment?
The workshop is being organized by the Network on Education Quality Monitoring in the Asia-Pacific (NEQMAP) Secretariat at UNESCO Bangkok, in collaboration with the Southeast Asia Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO) Centre for Quality Improvement of Teachers and Education Personnel (QITEP) in Science, the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER), and with the generous support of the Global Partnership for Education (GPE).
