Conceptual framework and tools for developing effective assessment systems

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This presentation provides a detailed description of the conceptual framework and tools that have been developed under the READ Trust Fund program to help countries analyze and further develop their assessment systems. The conceptual framework underpinning the READ program is based on the definition of an assessment system as a group of policies, structures, practices, and tools for generating and using information on student learning. The framework identifies three main types/purposes of assessment activities within this system: (a) classroom assessment for grading and providing real-time information to support teaching and learning in individual classrooms; (b) national and international large-scale ‘survey’ assessments for monitoring overall system performance and accountability; and (c) examinations for student certification and selection. The framework also identifies key criteria for evaluating the quality of activities corresponding to any of these assessment types/purposes. The presentation concludes with a discussion of the instruments that have been developed, based on this framework, to help countries describe, evaluate, and plan for further improvement of their assessment system.
