Assessing and Leading STEM Learning

Details

This session explores assessing learning progression in STEM. In essence there are three aspects to consider:


1. Assessing the knowledge, skill and thinking specific to the curriculum areas being covered (i.e. science, technologies, maths, etc.)
2. Assessing learning progression in the underlying thinking frameworks (computational, design, etc.)
3. Assessing learning progression in the general capabilities and especially self- regulation.


In this session, learn various approaches to measuring learning progression in transdisciplinary units. Participants will use a range of provided rubrics to assist in designing their own assessment rubrics for an example unit. The session will end by discussing structures that will support the STEM learning in the classroom.


Objectives and Outcomes:

  • Discuss assessing STEM learning and systemising student self-assessment
  • Share some examples of STEM assessment approaches from around Australia
  • Create a rubric for an example transdisciplinary unit
  • Identify the key elements necessary to be in place to succeed
