Better Assessment and Evaluation to Improve Teaching and Learning
Conference Date: 19 - 20 March, 2013
Venue: George's Hall, Dublin Castle
This conference focused on how assessment and evaluation frameworks and practices implemented by schools and educational systems best promote the acquisition of key competence and improved learning for students.
Delegates were enabled to consider the implications for policy and educational practice of recent research conducted by both the European Commission and the OECD, and the experience of countries that have successfully combined assessment and evaluation systems to promote better teaching and improved learning.
Participants at the conference included education policy makers, personnel from government departments and local authorities, personnel involved in evaluation and assessment, including inspectorates of education, research and evaluation institutes, school leaders and teacher educators.
