Delivering the future of assessment: Practical insights from the NCFE Assessment Innovation Fund

November 14, 2023 @ 3:00 pm 3:45 pm

As part of the Week of VocTech 2023, the Assessment Innovation Fund team from NCFE will be running a webinar with practical insights on delivering the future of assessment.

Developing new approaches to assessment can be challenging, however innovation in assessment is essential if we are to leverage the advantages of new technologies to help get adults learning and deliver the skills employers need.

Join the Assessment Innovation Fund team from NCFE to explore how new technologies and approaches are being adopted across the assessment system, driving forward the transformation of assessment and supporting post-16 learners to thrive and achieve their potential.

This session will explore three diverse Assessment Innovation Fund projects, each with an innovative approach to using technology to solve a problem for learners in an area of assessment. Projects will include:

  • The Calderdale College project to immerse learners in a VR and simulation centre assessment experience
  • The University of Newcastle Australia project that replaced traditional grades with digital badges
  • Runway Training who are helping learners to prepare for onscreen Maths and English exams

The session will also share details of NCFE’s Assessment Innovation Fund 2024, supported by Ufi VocTech Trust.

Who should attend?

This session will benefit anyone who is, or wants to, develop new approaches to assessment and wants to hear from people who have been there and done it. The session will also benefit educators wanting to keep up to date on the assessment methods of tomorrow.
