Assessment and EvaluationThe effective collection and analysis of student achievement data can help educators make informed choices about teaching practices to adopt or amend and strategies to develop to improve outcomes. It can also provide a better understanding of student learning needs.

To ensure that assessment meets the needs of all learners, educators must effectively use formative and summative assessments appropriate to their purpose and the needs of students. This course also examines fairness in assessment and evaluation. To ensure that assessment, evaluation and reporting are valid and reliable, and that they lead to the improvement of learning for all students, educator practices and procedures must be fair, supportive and carefully planned.
