  21. 22. Key Learning about Assessment <ul><li>Co constructing success criteria with students of a competency within a given context attaches greater meaning and understanding. </li></ul><ul><li>Students need opportunities to self assess themselves against agreed criteria </li></ul><ul><li>Stories can be used to describe increasing level of competency in individual students or groups of students. </li></ul>
  22. 23. Key Learning about Assessment <ul><li>Assessment of the Key Competencies is hugely problematic and there is a real danger that schools might resort to some kind of inappropriate ‘tick box’ system </li></ul><ul><li>Anecdotal evidence is subjective but useful. </li></ul><ul><li>The interrelated nature of the Key Competencies makes it difficult to assess in isolation </li></ul>
  23. 24. Schools will need to… clarify what the competencies mean for their students show how well the students are currently showing them identify the conditions that will help or hinder development
