This subject draws on foundation knowledge of assessment of and for learning developed in Year 2 and 3 curriculum based subjects. In this subject, pre-service teachers look at the broad range of data and evidence available to teachers and carers to inform planning for learning and development at a class, cluster, or whole school/centre level. Sources of data and evidence will be critically scrutinized to inform choices of data/evidence and knowledge of sophisticated analysis and synthesis of multiple sources will be developed. This will include knowledge of moderation procedures (developed and applied) to ensure that issues impacting on consistent application and interpretation of standards is understood. Attention will be given to requirements for recording and storing information securely and using information ethically and within legislative and regulatory requirements. Finally, pre-service teachers will use data to communicate with a range of stakeholders, including parents and carers, regarding the progression of student learning.
