Assessment tools

Assessment tools

To judge the impact of teaching and learning, a range of assessment tools and procedures may be used.

  • Using evidence for learning: These pages address an essential component in the ongoing cycle of inquiry that is central to improving teaching and learning: the collection and analysis of high quality evidence.

Also: Assessment Online on TKI

Standardised tools

These tools have standardised procedures around their administration and many are norm referenced.

Dr Jane Davison's presentation covers interpretation of progress data from e-asTTle, using:

  • a range of comparisons that can be made depending on the evaluation question one asks
  • multiple perspectives on effect sizes and their interpretation
  • evaluative rubrics for interpreting accelerated student progress and achievement, and for inquiring into key drivers of student progress such as effective teaching, educational leadership and school culture, case management and implementation, and much more.

Observation-based procedures

These assessment processes/procedures are more flexible and variable assessment strategies designed to improve literacy teaching and learning. Such processes are part of the ongoing interaction between teaching and learning. Examples include informal and planned observation, teacher–student conferences, interviews and conversations.
