This unit examines the purpose and structure of assessment and reporting within a range of educational settings, including schools and VET. You will begin by reviewing a range of assessment types, including informal and formal, diagnostic, formative and summative, and their integration into the learning environment.  You will develop an understanding of the feedback process, and develop strategies to assist the provision of timely and constructive responses to your learners. Finally, you will develop your knowledge and skills in interpreting student assessment data to evaluate student learning, identify implications for teaching practices, and prepare reports for parents/carers and other educational stakeholders.
