This workshop addresses issues in assessment, evaluation, and grading practices in secondary schools. Issues discussed will include the balance of formative and summative assessment, the use of zero as a mark, marks deductions for late work and other work habit issues, grading group work, averaging marks across the semester/year, re-dos, and retakes. This workshop supports the directions of the revised curriculum and can incorporate core competency based reflections.
