Subject outline

In this subject students use the National Curriculum as the basis for understanding the broad aims and objectives for designing curriculum. These are translated into practical and effective programs to use in the classroom. Students will examine the theoretical basis for the variety of types of assessment and reporting which are an integral part of curriculum design. Assessment tools will be evaluated for their effectiveness in promoting learning and informing teaching. Emphasis is placed on researching and reflecting on current assessment and reporting practices in Victorian schools.
