Assessment and Learning

During this course, you will delve deeper into the role that assessment plays in teaching.

    General

    Course Content 

    During the course, you will use your own assessment to work on your assessment quality in a structured way. You do this on the basis of the assessment cycle in which you go through a number of phases: from the evaluation of your own assessment to the redevelopment of your assessment and the assessment of your student’s work. During the course, various theoretical models are provided to help you with this.

    • You redesign assessment for your course in accordance with the assessment cycle, carrying out activities belonging to the different phases. 
    • You make a basic design for your assessment using motivated answers to the 5 basic questions of Stiggings (1999). 
    • You evaluate your assessment and formulate points of improvement for the quality of your assessment. 
    • You use an assessment matrix and, based on this, make a well-considered choice of assessment methods to assess the extent to which students have achieved the learning objectives. 
    • You use a specification table or an assignment specification form in order to make the structure of your assessment clear. 
    • You redesign your assessment with attention to both the formative and summative function of tests (including peer and self-feedback), so that students gain insight into their progress in relation to the learning objectives. 
    • You assess a student's assessment in a valid, reliable way based on an assessment model (assessment form/rubrics/answer model with scoring) so that you transparently justify how the assessment has been done. 

    Target audience 

    Teachers who participate in the regular UTQ programme. Teachers who do not participate in a UTQ programme are also welcome to follow the course, provided there are sufficient places. Teachers who participate in (parts of) the UTQ programme will be given priority for participation. 

    In order to develop yourself fully in the competency domain Assessment, it is necessary that you have appropriate teaching tasks when you participate in the course. If you do not have these tasks, please consult your supervisor.

    Working method during the course 

    The course consists of three sessions of 3 hours. You also make a choice in following one of three workshops, your course instructor will inform you about this. There is a fourth session for the completion of this competency domain for the teachers in the UTQ track. Teachers who do not want to obtain a partial certificate for the UTQ do not have to be present during the fourth meeting. 

    During the meetings and with the help of assignments that are in line with your own teaching practice, you will work on improving your assessment. Teachers who participate in the UTQ track can work on their UTQ assignment for the competency domain Assessment. The UTQ assignment is (partly) carried out in the teaching practice of your own faculty. You will receive feedback on your assessment from a mentor of the faculty. 

    Keep in mind that you must have done UTQ assignments prior to the first meeting that will take you around eight hours to complete.

    The course is provided in English, unless all participants speak Dutch.  

    Certificate of attendance  

    Teachers who have been present at all meetings and have completed the assignments will receive a Certificate of attendance. In order to receive the Certificate of attendance, active presence is required for 75% of the course. 

    Partial certificate UTQ 

    Teachers within the regular UTQ track complete the Testing competency domain with the course instructor during the final meeting of the course. When the course and the UTQ assignment have been successfully completed, the course instructor will give an advice to the faculty to award the partial certificate. Your faculty is responsible for awarding the partial certificate.  

    Costs 

    Participation is free. 

    Attendance during courses

    Due to the high demand for the courses, the number of teachers who can participate is limited. In order to be able to support as many teachers as possible, we ask you to give priority to the course and to be present at all meetings. The first meeting is essential for taking the course. If you are unable to attend this meeting, we ask you to cancel this edition and to register for another edition of the course. In the unlikely event that you are unable to attend one of the other meetings, we ask you to keep to the following procedure:

    2. Only cancel a meeting in unforeseen circumstances, such as illness, family circumstances, etc.
