The Blind Assessor: are we constraining or enriching student learning?

Monday, November 22, 2010 | 9.30am–3.45pm

Assessment is a highly contested area of school education. High-stakes testing and reporting for short-term political gain; public accountability and transparency; fair comparisons as a basis for school improvement; teach to the test – these are some of the catch-cries that surround the area of assessment. This symposium presents a range of experts in this area who, by the end of the day's program, will offer you greater knowledge and insight into this complex area of schooling.
