Curriculum Practice in Context

Assessment task link to unit learning outcomes: This assessment task covers elements of learning outcomes 2, 3, 4 and 5 from the handbook entry for this course (see above).
handbook entry for this course (see above).
Details of task: You are to design two different types of assessment tasks, including marking guides, for curriculum topics of your choice. The two assessments can both be for the same curriculum topic or each can be for a different topic. You must also provide a written justification for your assessments. Your assignment must include the following: Your assessments should be of different types. For example, dont submit two tests consisting entirely of multiple choice questions. Rather, you could design one such test for your first assignment and an essay question, oral presentation, or structured interview for your second assignment. Each assessment must be aligned with a learning objective, outcome or standard from an Australian curriculum policy (e.g., the Early Years Framework, the Victorian F-12 curriculum, the Australian F-10 Curriculum). Include your chosen objective, outcome or standard at the start of your assessment tasks. You are to submit two assessments that are ready to use in the classroom/centre. Thus, if you chose to design a test or exam paper, then you create and submit the test/exam paper itself. If you want to create a project, essay or performance task then you write and submit the instructions for the task (i.e., the instructions you would give to students). If the task is aimed at younger students, for whom written instructions would be inappropriate, then you should write up the instructions for the teacher as if explaining to them how to set up and administer the assessment task.
? The instructions included in an assessment task will vary greatly depending on the nature of the task and the age of the students. However, common instructions include the length of the task (e.g., 400-word essay); how long students have to complete it (e.g., 45 minute test; 10 minute interview); the location and procedures for the assessment [e.g. in class test, take home project, field work report, group task, etc.]; description of resources students can/must use (e.g., open/closed book, the internet, art materials, toys); presentation and format of the assessment (e.g., poster, performance).
? There is no strict word limit for this part of the assignment as this will vary depending on the nature of the task. However, as a rough guide, this part of the assignment will usually consist of (i.e., 300-400 words per approximately 600-800 words assessment task). For example, a test or exam may consist of around 20 items/questions (around 400 words). Instructions for an essay, project or structured observation might be about 300 words. For each of your assessments you must include a relevant marking/feedback guide. The nature of this will differ depending on the type of assessment:
? An essay, project, performance task, portfolio, etc., would normally be accompanied by an age appropriate marking rubric that includes weighted assessment criteria, descriptors and mark ranges for each descriptor. (For very young students this may be written as a marking guide just for the teacher).
? For tests, exams, structured interviews, etc., the guide would usually consist of the numbers of marks to be allocated for each item and, perhaps, an explanation of how these marks are to be awarded (i.e., what the student needs to do to get the full marks for each question).
? Again, there is no strict word limit for this part of the assignment as this will vary depending on the nature of the task. However, as a rough guide, this part of the assignment will probably consist of (i.e., 400 words per approximately 800 words assessment task).
You are to write a justification for your two assignments. Your justification should refer to ideas examined in class and in readings
5. You are to write a justification for your two assignments. Your justification should refer to ideas examined in class and in readings during weeks 10-12 (e.g., reliability, validity and fairness/inclusiveness), as well as any further research and policies you like. (approximately 400-600 words)
Note: There are examples and marking guides for a range of assessment tasks on Moodle.
