It is commonly recognised that early-career teachers often lack the confidence and the skills to develop meaningful assessment opportunities for their learners.
Indeed, assessment itself is mistakenly seen as being synonymous with developing tests which demonstrate learning at the end of a given period of learning. This masterclass challenges the view that testing and assessment are synonymous and provides practical examples of assessment activities which can create better learning, better teaching and better learners.
It introduces the concepts of assessment of, for and as learning and suggests that an awareness of assessment ideas from mainstream education can inform and improve our practice.

Preparing for the Workshop
Our Masterclass workshops are typically delivered in 90 mins.
At Gallery Teachers, we endorse the philosophy of building on your previous knowledge and experience as opposed to just imparting knowledge on you.
Therefore, in order to prepare you for the webinar and help you activate what you already know about the topic, we will suggest two to four reflective questions for you to consider before you join the event.
You will also be given the opportunity to post your reflections, along with any questions you may already have at the pre-watching stage, to the discussion forum.
The reflective questions, as well as ideas and shared experiences posted to the forum by attendees, will be used in the real-time Q&A session in order to generate an engaging and meaningful discussion, involving the presenter and teachers from around the world.
After the event, the forum discussion will take on a life of its own and teachers will be encouraged to continue posting their experiences, reflections and questions related to the topic of the webinar. So, if you feel strongly about the topic, we will make it possible for you to take the discussion beyond the scheduled workshop and continue sharing your ideas with like-minded teachers and teacher trainers from other countries
This workshop has the following session(s). When all Sessions are completed, you will be presented with a PDF certificate. Click on the link below to access the session content.

How did this workshop go? We’d love to hear your feedback!
Every workshop has delivered something I can use in my classes. I´ve since given several classes putting into practice the lessons from the workshop.
Assessment of, for and as Learning
Another eye opening master class related to assessment in which Neil Harris explained with excellent details an examples the importance of AFL to encourage students autonomy regarding their own progress. A really inspiring masterclass which I highly recommend. Great learning with you and from you Neil! Thank you very much!
Testing and assessment are 2 different things!
A very clear masterclass on the difference between testing and assessment and the different purposes of each one. I particularly enjoyed the live Q&A session. Neil and André did a great job in expanding some ideas about PBL and the use of L1 regarding assessment. My takeaway is about the framework of Teaching for understanding. Thanks a lot!
