Are you assessment-literate? Do you have knowledge of ways of assessing what students know and can do, and know how to interpret the results of these assessments? Do you know how to apply these results to improve student learning? Are your students benefiting from your assessments?
Teachers must have assessment capability in order to guide and support their students’ assessment capability. Teachers who are assessment-capable (like assessment-capable students) take ownership of their learning, recognise areas for improvement, and take steps to improve their assessment capability.
