Lecture 6 - Assessment

In this lecture we spoke about the way psychological theory has impacted on how education assesses their students and pupils. During this lecture we covered:

  • Norm. vs. criterion referenced assessment.
  • Validity
  • Authentic assessment and the introduction of authentic learning
  • Backwards Design

This was intellectually probably the most 'dense' of the lectures in this lecture series. It really required an understanding of the previous lectures to really comprehend the concepts.
