This 2-day advanced workshop will focus on establishing the validity of an assessment system.
This course was ideal for professors who are in decision-making leadership roles related to knowledge-based assessment at their school; and who have previously participated in related ‘Teaching Excellence’ workshops in 2017/2018.
Participants are required to bring a report of an individual assessment or an assessment programme. This can be an actual report or a report design that you would like to use. These reports will be verbally presented for discussion (each candidate has maximum of 5 mins to present, so focus on headings not minutiae of details).
Participants are required to bring 3 single best answer items that have been written according to best principals. The items will be presented to the group for review.
