Horizon forum: Towards a growth mindset in assessment - Professor Geoff Masters AO

Horizon Forum with Professor Geoff Masters AO, CEO and board member of the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER)

What messages are we sending to students when we report success or failure?
How do assessment and reporting processes shape our beliefs about learning?

About the Session

It

is commonly believed that by specifying ‘standards’ to be achieved by all students in each year of school, and by judging, grading and reporting performance against these standards, learning expectations and thus achievement levels will be raised.

The problems with this approach are that it does not provide all students with appropriate learning challenges, it often obscures rather than clarifies the relationship between effort and success, and it frequently encourages fixed mindsets about learning ability.

Professor Geoff Masters AO will discuss an alternative to this approach:

- to establish where individual students are in their learning
- to set personal stretch targets for further learning
- to monitor and recognise the progress that individuals make over time.

Rather than expecting all students of the same age to be at the same point in their learning at the same time, this approach expects every student to make excellent learning progress over the course of a school year, regardless of their starting point.
