Course content

This online distance learning programme engages critically with major issues in assessment, a highly significant topic for education systems across the world. It develops skills of assessment in relation to individual learners, to classrooms and schools and to local, national and international systems.

  • You will reflect on and critique theory, cutting-edge research and current policies and practice in assessment and consider the impact of these on social justice.
  • You will have opportunities to collaborate and network with peers from a variety of work contexts and locations, to support critical reflection, peer and self-assessment and effective use of online distance learning.
  • You will consider how research, policy and practice interact in the development of often contested innovations in educational assessment across the globe.
  • The programme blends theory, research, practice and policy and explores the relationships between assessment and the promotion of social justice.
  • You will be taught by academics who have been employed in the development of national policy in assessment and have experience in the practices of classroom education and a commitment to social justice.
  • Teaching staff have considerable experience in international cooperation: in research in assessment, as consultants to a number of governments and in employment by international organisations.
