In an ideal situation, teachers are expected to employ students’ assessments to gather information directly and use the data derived to alter lessons with a view to achieving better learning outcomes. Yet, compilation, analysis, documentation and use of test results that showed patterns in student errors, which has the capacity to assist teachers in figuring out better sequencing of content and different ways to teach particular topics, are rarely taken into consideration.

 

This study tour has been designed to impact on the institutionalization of assessments as tools for improved teaching and learning. Delegates will be exposed to tools and techniques that will enable mainstream assessments as a fundamental component of teaching and learning and not merely as a separate process.
