SIF 2 ERA ‘Repositioning Learner Assessment Project’ Research Grants 2009

The Centre for Learning and Teaching is pleased to invite applications for financial support for action research activities and projects under the SIF 2 ‘Repositioning Learner Assessment Project’.

DkIT, in collaboration with Institute of Technology Carlow, ITB and ITTD, has been granted funding for its Repositioning Learner Assessment project. This project aims to transform thinking about, and practices of assessment across the partnership and the sector. The proposal is a response to growing concerns throughout the IoT sector about a set of new assessment issues including:

a) Linking learning outcomes, teaching and evidence-based assessment practices

b) Grading and assurance of academic standards

c) Feedback to learners & use of formative and summative assessment

d) Larger class sizes and assessment of group learning

e) International learners unfamiliar with Irish assessment methods

f) Use of technology in assessment.
