We are conducting research, teaching and consulting on the methodology and practice of educational measurement and assessment. We welcome partnerships within the Sydney School of Education and Social Work, with other centres within the University, and with other institutions, external organisations or companies.
We also offer innovative Master of Education units of study delievered entirely online that provide a basic introduction to what teachers need to know and can do to assess effectively and maximise learning.
Tine Nielsen is Associate Professor, Psychometrics and Psychological Testing in the Department of Psychology at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. During her visit she presented to the Educational Measurement Interest Group on the topic of “Student self-rating of grades on learning objectives: with students’ course evaluations and final course grades”.
We hosted five delegates from Beijing Institute of Education for a week-long academic exchange. The visitors were keen to discuss modern assessment theory including standards referencing, performance-based assessment, constructing rubrics for cognitive and non-cognitive skills and the way these assessment concepts were implemented in Australian schools. We would like to especially thank our academic staff and outside experts who gave their time and expertise to this exchange.
