Join us for our fifth “Let’s Talk” session of 2023, a series created to delve into the important issues and challenges that educators are currently addressing. In this session, we will focus on the topic of self-assessment.

During the session, we will cover the following points:

Data analysis: How to effectively analyse data.
Text-data alignment: Ensuring that the text matches the presented data.
Text-grade correspondence: Confirming that the text corresponds to the assigned grade.
Clarity for learners, employers, and staff: Making sure that the content is easily understandable.
Evaluative self-assessment: Strategies for conducting rigorous self-assessment.
Determining the final grade: Steps to reach a conclusive grade.

The session will provide ample opportunities for discussion, Q&A, and guidance on accessing valuable FIN resources. If you need assistance with booking, please contact us at [email protected].
