Rethinking assessment: inclusive assessment & standards in a dynamic and changing worldBook event
On 17 April 2024, QQI, AHEAD and the Disability Advisors Working Network (DAWN) will host a conference on “Rethinking Assessment: Inclusive Assessment & Standards in a Dynamic and Changing World”. The conference will take place in the Radisson Blu Hotel, Golden Lane, Dublin .
The aim of this event is to encourage teaching/academic staff, leaders, academic and learner support staff, and learners from the further and higher education sectors, and Professional, Statutory & Regulatory Bodies, to reflect on the validity of their preferred approaches to assessment of learners’ achievement of intended learning outcomes (i.e., standards) and, in doing so, to reflect on how students are affected, whether those standards and assessment approaches need to be more inclusive and, if so, how to make them more inclusive.
We will hear from national and international experts on:
- the challenges to inclusive assessment and standards in contemporary teaching, learning and assessment contexts;
- the impacts where assessment and standards are not inclusive; and
- how we might respond to the challenges and opportunities presented.
The event will feature case studies of innovative practice in inclusive assessment and standards from across further and higher education and participants will consider the potential for the development of national principles in this space.
