This course will examine and apply theory to evaluate curriculum, teaching programs and student learning. Students will build an understanding of the practical application of strategies for evaluating and improving student learning. A range of assessment strategies will be investigated, including assessing student learning through diagnostic, formative (including peer and self-assessment) and summative assessment to inform teaching practice. Students will examine strategies for providing timely and appropriate feedback to students about their learning and strategies for reporting to parents and carers. The course explores approaches for keeping accurate and reliable records for reporting on student achievement.

Note: Due to the Job-ready Graduates Package new funding clusters and contribution amounts will take effect in the 2021 academic year. Grandfathering arrangements will be in place for students who would see an increase in their contribution amounts. Under these arrangements, students who commenced their course of study before 1 January 2021 facing increased student contribution amounts for a unit, will instead have their student contribution and Australian Government contribution amounts remain as they were under the previous arrangements (with existing rates being indexed by CPI each year). If continuing students are enrolled in units that will see their student contribution amount lowered, their student contributions will be the lowered amount
