Illustrations of Practice Video Series: Standard 5 - Assess, provide feedback and report on student learning

11 NOVEMBER 2019

The Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) has produced a series of videos featuring teachers illustrating, through their practice, how they meet the various descriptors of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.

We’ve chosen one example as our focus. Watching this video and reflecting on how you could apply this in your teaching context can count as part of your professional learning requirements for renewal of registration.

5.3 Make consistent and comparable judgements

Demonstrate understanding of assessment moderation and its application to support consistent and comparable judgements of student learning.

Team teaching moderation
The teacher works with a colleague to moderate students’ work after a summative assessment task in order to make consistent and comparable judgements about students and their learning. As they team-teach a Year 3 and 4 mathematics class, the moderation of student work is key to providing students with consistent feedback on their learning.
