Better Judgement: Improving assessors’ management of factors affecting their judgement
Are you involved in assessing students in oral- or practice-based situations? If so, then this event is an opportunity for you to learn how to make better judgements about students’ performance.
Competency-based education is becoming ever more popular, but its assessment is not easy. Human judgement plays a necessary part in all assessment programmes. However, human judgement is vulnerable to judgement biases. This workshop will trial materials developed as part of the Office for Learning & Teaching funded project ‘Better Judgement’ that focuses on improving the validity of human judgements in observation-based assessment (e.g. orals, Work-Integrated Learning assessment).
This practical workshop will include information on judgement biases in assessment with examples, videoed sample exercise cases, training exercises and some of strategies to avoid biases. Staff from all disciplines and Higher Education institutions are welcome. The workshop will run for 3 hours and will include an opportunity for networking over morning tea.
