CRADLE seminar – David Carless -17 September, 3pm
David Carless, Professor of Educational Assessment and Associate Dean (Learning and Teaching) in the Faculty of Education, University of Hong Kong, is presenting a seminar for CRADLE. The topic is:
Analyzing exemplars to support students’ understandings of assessment
Exemplars are samples of student work which are used to illustrate dimensions of quality. They are a potentially useful element of assessment for learning in higher education because they can support learner understanding of the nature of goals and standards.
This presentation reports on the early stages of a project which seeks to enhance the use of exemplars amongst participating teachers in a Faculty of Education. A key emerging issue is that it is the quality of the dialogue around exemplars which is crucial in optimizing student learning.
The paper concludes with some suggestions for good practice in the dialogic use of exemplars and charts some future research directions.
