Assessment Series

Good assessment practices are intrinsic to effective teaching and Learning. Before, during and after each class, teachers respond to the needs of their students and make decisions to guide and improve the learning process. This process requires an understanding of the fundamentals of classroom assessment.

Kildare Education Support Centre is delighted to collaborate with Dr. Zita Lysaght and Prof. Michael O’Leary from the Institute of Education at Dublin City University to provide a Professional Development Series on Classroom Assessment.

This series on Assessment is designed to explore the key principles and strategies that underpin good assessment practice.
