What is your advice about? Assessment
1: Spend time planning your assessment carefully; think about it in terms of delivering it, assessing it, analysing it and giving feedback about it.
2: Pre-made assessment tools, be they made by colleagues, purchased, or found online shouldn’t be used without adjustment – make it your own, your students will know the difference.
3: There is no single “best” assessment type. Use a lot of variety, experiment, and keep on experimenting. Your students change, so should your assessment.
4: Keep data on assessment – try and see if each question gave you the information about student attainment you wanted. If not, let it evolve – don’t keep using a broken tool.
5: Share your assessment tools – see how your colleagues change them and make them different. Use them as information to improve your own skill.
