Creating opportunities for formative assessment during science inquiries - W90

Location : Palmer, 103

Speakers

  1. King's College, London - Dr Catarina Correia
  2. King's College, London

How can we begin to grasp what formative assessment looks like during primary and secondary science inquiries and how do we know when we are providing feedback that is formative? Assess Inquiry in Science, Technology, and Mathematics (ASSISTME) is an EU FP7 project that is focused on the development of assessment tools for inquiry. In this session we will use some of the inquiries that our participant primary and secondary schools engaged with as a context to share our research and professional development findings that are helping us to understand the learning environment that fosters inquiry and the characteristics of formative assessment arising out of this.
