8 July | 2:15 pm - 3:00 pm
This session with explore the reasons why we need to rethink our damaging assessment system. In particular, it will showcase the arguments curated by the Rethinking Assessment organisation, and outline the work they are doing to build a better alternative. The system’s obsession with a particular kind of exam is detracting from the educational experience of virtually every student in the country, and other approaches are not only possible, but already taking off. This is a chance to hear some practical steps schools can take towards innovation in assessment.
