Session 2 A
Assessment Issues in the Secondary Classroom: Challenges and Possibilities
Presenter(s):
BCTF
Description:
This workshop addresses issues in assessment, evaluation, and grading practices in secondary schools. Issues discussed will include the balance of formative and summative assessment, the use of zero as a mark, marks deductions for late work and other work habit issues, grading group work, averaging marks across the semester/year, re-dos, and retakes. This workshop supports the directions of the revised curriculum and can incorporate core competency based reflections. (This workshop complements the Assessment for Learning workshop and can be booked in conjunction or separately. If both workshops are being considered it is advised that Assessment Issues in the Secondary Classroom be booked to begin this conversation).
