The Inclusive Student Assessment Module is intended to support the training of teachers, principals, inspectors, teacher trainers, educators and curriculum development specialists by strengthening capacities in the field of student assessment under a broadened concept of inclusive education and inclusive curriculum. Through integrating perspectives on assessment from around the world, it also draws upon an international comparative perspective on student assessment that practitioners can use to further reflect upon education in their own contexts. The module aims to equip professionals with the foundational understanding and tools required to effectively develop student assessment mechanisms by providing an expansive sequence of exercises that: Introduce users to essential student assessment concepts and principles; Highlight the need to revisit student assessment in light of the broadened concept of Inclusive Education; Introduce different approaches and activities to promote inclusivity in student assessment; Offer opportunities to gain hands-on experience in forging inclusive student assessment strategies and tools; Explore key competencies required for educators to effectively analyse and implement renewed student assessment practices; Provide insight into how teachers can transform knowledge-based student assessment into student-centred formative assessment that contributes to developing relevant competencies, including attitudes and behaviours; Explore the connections between student assessment at different levels (international, subregional, national and school-based); and relate student assessment issues to other aspects of education (e.g. curriculum, teacher capacity development) and society in a holistic manner.
