Solstice Conference: Edge Hill University: 5th June

Thoroughly enjoyed Day 1 of the Conference – thanks to all whose sessions I attended. Here are the main slides from my concluding keynote:  reinventing-assessment-15-2017-Solstice-w.pptx (107 downloads) . A transcript of most of your wonderful responses to the post-it task is now here: Solstice-Post-its.docx (70 downloads) . Here are two more post-its which escaped the main batch when I transcribed them, but are very relevant… Assessment needs reinventing now because: (1) it doesn’t assess people’s competence of ability from an employability perspective and (2) We are always complaining about assessment overload, but still setting the same assessments (and children are taught differently than we were). Thanks for being a great audience.
