Course description

Since there can be no learning without assessment: this course will help teachers to understand assessment from the viewpoint of education and competencies. Competent assessment means that the assessment is part of the teaching and learning process and its aim is to assist the student body to know their real learning level: their levels of comprehension and skills. We assess so that pupils may learn more and better. This new approach to assessment requires a variety of tools and helps to gain an understanding of mistakes as a source for learning and to view the development of pupils from a mindset focussed on growth.
